Daniel Seiple is an American interdiscplinary artist based in Berlin. Employing an array of media including woodpiles, moving vans, weekend hobbies and plumbing, Seiple coaxes meaningful experiences out of mundane activities, friendly confrontations and concocted group activity. He is a founding member of the artist collective E-Team (eteam), creator of the residential exhibition space Homie, and co-founder of the group KUNSTrePUBLIK, in which he worked since 2006 as curator, artist, researcher and activist at Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum and in other public art contexts. Seiple is the director of Syracuse University's graduate program in Berlin and a visiting professor at Bard College Berlin.
