Noah Fischer

lives and works in
New York, United States
Noah Fischer is an artist and activist. His installations, videos, and drawings explore the official rhetoric and currencies that condition national identity. He asks: How can art practice aid the peoples’ movements that struggle to change the narrative? Following the 2008 crash, Fischer shifted focus to the streets, collaborating with the Aaron Burr Society on a Wall Street performance series in summer 2011, and then merging his practice with the Occupy movement from September 17. Within the movement, Fischer has initiated Occupy Museums, planned actions at MoMA and Lincoln Center, and intervened in the 7th Berlin Bienniale for Contemporary Art. Currently the artist is occupying museums internationally, making free sculpture, and modeling a post-capitalist art market.
