Art Practice

For Herbert Siebner, life and art were inextricably connected. The records he created in his private life as well as in his professional capacity as an artist form the series Art Practice. Records in this series include correspondence with family, friends, galleries, artists, and politicians; inventory lists; photographic prints, negatives and slides—subjects include friends, family, events and works of art; sketches; exhibition marketing materials; and personal writing. Throughout his adult life, Siebner wrote down his dreams, thoughts and philosophical ideas, sometimes by hand in notebooks, often typed on standard and legal sized paper. He retained carbon copies of these typed writings and outgoing letters. Many of the letters and personal missives are in German or a combination of German and English.
