Daniel Seiple presented his curatorial practice including Homie Galerie, Skulpturenpark, and other activities of KUNSTrePUBLIK, the 5-artist group that operates the park and collectively and individually makes art, teaches and organizes symposia and research projects on socio-political themes and spatial theory. Skulturenpark Berlin_Zentrum encourages sculpture as a process that has the potential to reveal and critique the social, historical and structural contexts provided by the site.

He is the founder of Homie Berlin, a temporary exhibition space in his apartment and a founding member of the artist collectives, eteam andKUNSTrePUBLIK , in which he has worked as curator, artist, researcher and activist at Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum and in other contexts including the 5th berlin biennial. His art emerges from the practical necessities of everyday life such as work, leisure and social exchange. Employing an array of artistic strategies – sculpture, performance, video and curation – Seiple develops quixotic schemes to activate public and private space. He has exhibited worldwide in public places, galleries, museums and festivals. Seiple is the Watson Visiting Collaborator at Syracuse University sponsored by the Humanities Center. He is also the 601 Tully Artist in Resident sponsored by UPSTATE. Throughout the Spring Semester of 2013, Daniel will collaborate with Marion Wilson to teach a college course entitled “New Directions in Social Sculpture” in which students will gain experience in social and public sculpture. The class will culminate in a collaborative and public work of art on the grounds of the 601 Tully building in Syracuse’s Near West Side.
