Stanley Brouwn was born in 1935 at Paramaribo in Suriname. He lives and works in Amsterdam.
Stanley Brouwn is one of the most important representatives of the Conceptual Art. Since the seventies, an integral part of Stanley Brouwn’s artistic work has been the publication of books. His conceptual works deal with distances, measurements, or spaces between two points, persons, and places. His practice examines this fundamental human activity in ever new contexts and measures distances according to his own units of measure, such as the Brouwn cubit, the Brouwn foot, or the Brouwn step.
