Wolf is Dead
The artist Wolfgang Stoerchle is inaugurating the museum’s ARRHYTHMICS section this spring. In 1970 Allan Kaprow recruited Stoerchle to teach in the Post-Studio Art program at CalArts, the California Institute of the Arts, alongside John Baldessari, Judy Chicago, David Salle, Nam June Paik and many others. Infatuated by the dozen new Portapak cameras which the school acquired, Wolfgang started to experiment with video while teaching it at the same time.
For MACRO, the editor and curator Alice Dusapin reached out to his former student, the musician Daniel Lentz, who commemorated Wolfgang’s passing in his work.
