Susan Cohn: Tech­no Craft

Nation­al Gallery of Australia

This cat­a­logue explores the life of craftswoman, jew­eller, met­al­work­er and design­er Susan Cohn. In 1980 she start­ed her career and since then she has con­tin­ued to pro­duce bod­ies of work that engage with con­tem­po­rary life. Cohn’s inspi­ra­tion comes from her sur­round­ing envi­ron­ment, new tech­nolo­gies and tech­no music. This cat­a­logue con­tains three essays on Cohn, explor­ing the inner work­ings of the artist’s mind as well as her com­men­tary on the social and polit­i­cal influ­ences with­in the artis­tic community.
