Daphne Plessner

United Kingdom (residence)

 Daphne Plessner is a practicing artist who writes and produces visual and text based artwork and public interventions. Her current project is an online publishing platform called “The Citizen Artist” (www.citizenartist.org.uk). It has two functions: it documents collaborative and interventionist art projects that creatively use investigative journalistic strategies to examine the notion of citizenship through a series of interweaving topics such as 'Protest', 'What is a University?', 'Assembly'. The site also archives journal articles, critical writing and information on activist-artists and artists who use media (print publishing and journalism, broadcast and new media) as central to their practice. She has won a number of research grants for projects and has exhibited her artwork in galleries and institutions in Europe over the past 20 years. She is also an Associate Professor at the Emily Carr University of Art & Design in Vancouver, Canada and formerly Senior Lecturer and Course Director of the BA Book Arts & Design programme at London College of Communication, University of the Arts London, UK. She holds a BA (Hons) Philosophy, Birkbeck College, University of London and is currently working on a MPhil/PhD in Politics at Goldsmith's College. Previously, she studied Fine Art at a number of institutions, including the Emily Carr College of Art and the University of British Columbia (Art History) before taking up study at the Akademie der Bildenden Kunste, Munich, Germany under the artist Robin Page, one of the early members of the Fluxus movement.
