Anthony Schrag

Dr Anthony Schrag is a freelance artist and researcher. His work is site-responsive and context-led, and he views the processes of collaborative engagement as the core value of the work, rather than the production of art objects. Employing strategies of ‘play’ and physical methodologies as integral ways of developing new knowledge, he is interested in developing collective narratives in which groups or individuals ask important and difficult questions about their lives. Key to this work is an analysis of institutional applications of ‘socially engaged’ practices and how/what organisations assume participatory practices can achieve, including a critique of cultural policy and ‘institutional intent’.
