KunstFach

Playing off the homonymic puns of Kunst (art) and Fach (compartment) and German compound words, Stephen creates new German compound swear words pertinent to the experiences of contemporary life. This creative endeavor simultaneously refracts the compartmentalization of what constitutes “art” – how it patently excludes creative expressions that fall outside academic and capitalist criteria.

Started by trans-discplinary art-ivist Stephen Chen to consolidate his recent work; as well as facilitate collaboration with others. Stephen’s oeuvre is often allegorical as well as simultaneously deconstruct and hybridize the very forms he works in. Disdaining academic and esoteric expressions, as well as institutional conventions and practices, Stephen explores complex ideas and issues immanent in his works through experiments in form and technique.
