Episode 82: Brian Dettmer

Out There Atlanta is switching its focus to Atlanta and other Southern transplants living in the New York area. In these interviews, we reestablish connections with these artists and talk about their backgrounds, artistic journeys, what brought them to the South, and what took them away. 

Brian Dettmer is an artist working primarily in sculpture with an emphasis on books. He’s originally from the Chicago-area and moved to Atlanta in 2006. A few months ago he relocated to New York. Dettmer has been exhibited internationally and featured in publications including The New York Times and Modern Painters. In this podcast he discusses how an early job at a sign shop influenced his current work, making the switch in college from design to sculpture, and stumbling upon books as a medium.

Topics include: the idea of a universal language, the guilt of ripping up books, and suggesting erasure without actually erasing.
