Andrew Newman is an artist and researcher. His performative art practice poetically utilises methodologies from the communication sciences to examine value construction in contemporary culture. He is currently researching the application of Joseph Beuys’ concept of social sculpture to economic markets and is exploring the existential elements of the economic theory of Andre Gorz.

Newman completed a MFA under Ryszard Dabek and John Conomos at the Sydney College of the Arts, exploring the application of Roland Barthe’s notion of pothos, the desire for the absent being, to televisual art practice. He has studied experimental media under German filmmaker Karl Kels at the Universität der Künste, Berlin and journalism and communication at the University of Technology in Sydney and the University of Hamburg. He has had his work exhibited in Sydney, Berlin and Tokyo.
