Daniel Seiple is an American interdisciplinary artist based in Berlin. He is a founding member of the artist collective eteam (New York, 2000-02), creator of the residential exhibition space Homie (Berlin, 2005-09), and co-founder of the organization KUNSTrePUBLIK e.V. (Berlin, 2006-2012), which created Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum and other public art initiatives. In individual and collaborative projects, he explores issues of urbanity, cultural politics and site-based poetics.
In the frame of e.city – Berlin Daniel Seiple suggested an international workshop aiming to the construction of a boat for and by refugees under the name of Making Waves.
This artistic proposal will take shape in many forms, as a workshop, boat voyage, film and exhibition. Artworks will include the motorboat, preliminary sketches, models, interviews and other artefacts. After the exhibition, the fate of the boat will be posed as a question to the group – whether to sell, donate, or maintain it for further exploration or other artistic purposes.
