Martijn Engelbregt (EGBG)
Surveys, Data + Statistics
Co-sponsored by the Netherlands Consulate-General (Los Angeles)

In this lecture, Martijn Engelbregt will survey past projects and themes including: Democratic Art, Telemarketing, Dead Animals in the City, and Research Experience.

BIO: Engelbregt founded his research office EGBG (Eens gegeven, blijft gegeven—the Dutch double entendre for ‘once given, always given / once a fact, always a fact’) immediately upon graduation from the Utrecht School of the Arts in 1996. His obsessive interest in forms, questionnaires and statistics are the inspiration for a body of work that is as playful in language as it is confrontational and humorous. His works touch upon art, design, research and politics and have earned the ire and admiration of the subjects themselves; including, the Dutch government and telemarketers.
