Stanley BROUWN (b. 1935)

Stanley Brouwn began practicing in the 1960s during a period heavily influenced by the Fluxus movement. 

 

The subjective, arbitrary nature of measurements intrigued Brouwn and became the subject of his explorations within a conceptual art framework. Amongst his most famous works are early pieces in which he asked passers-by to draw directions to a particular point. He would then stamp the drawings with 'this way brouwn'.

 

Since 1972 Brouwn has asked that no biographical information should be given about him and that no works be reproduced.
