The Baldessari Assignments
2016

The American artist John Baldessari proposed a list of "art ideas” to his indecisive students at CalArts in the 1970s. Brotherus started to use these ideas as assignments in her own teaching: "I saw how much fun the students had doing the Baldessari assignments and thought that I want to do them too. In 2016 at my nomination for the Prix Elysée, I started to use different instructions like Fluxus event scores and Baldessari’s ideas as the basis of new work." The Baldessari Assignments is a still on-going series.
