Noah Fischer is an artist and activist based in New York. His sculptures and performances are activated by the rhetoric, symbols, and currencies that condition one’s public identity as participant in a culture or economy. After attending Columbia University, Fischer (MFA 2004) moved to the Netherlands on a Fulbright, initiating a collaboration with the Berlin-based theatre group andcompany&Co and touring with performances which playfully explore economic ideology. His sculptural exhibitions such as Rhetoric Machine (2006, Oliver Kamm Gallery NYC) and Electrical Forest (2009) and Pop Ark (2008, Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Brussels) explore the official rhetoric of 20th Century technological and political progress. 

Following the crash of 2008, Fischer exited from the private art market.  In 2011, he collaborated with the Aaron Burr Society on a performance series called Summer of Change speaking out about economic injustice in public performances on Wall Street months before the Occupy Movement was initiated in New York.  Since September 2011, Fischer merged his practice with the Occupy Movement, initiating action groups Occupy Subways and Occupy Museums. Fischer participated in the 7th Berlin Biennial as a member of Occupy Museums and in “Truth is Concrete” at the Steirischer Herbst,  Graz 2012.  Currently Fischer is developing a “market action” called Debtfair ( and engages in a new series of videos. He is also involved in a new international stage of Occupy Museums called Winter Holiday Camp

Sisters Hope operate in the intersection of performance art, research, activism and pedagogy. They are working proactively toward manifesting a more sensuous and poetic educational system.
A storm rages outside, but behind sturdy walls, the sisters are doing important experiments: while the old world is falling apart, they investigate what values to base the new world on. A long time ago, the sisters became aware that something would happen to the world they knew, and so they formed a school – Sisters Hope. Since then, they have inspired youths from the entire nation, nourished the ground and planted special seeds. The time has ripened. It is ripe. It is time for the birth of Sisters Academy, the unity of inspirations, the reaping of visions – A place open to fresh and fleshy ideas. A place where the dream you just dreamed is as important as the breath you take. A place where the ambience touches your soul as the light fades. A place where memories of the past is turned into hope for the future…
Sisters Hope was founded in 2007 by Anna Lawaetz and Gry Worre Hallberg. In the fictitious universe they personify Coco and Coca Pebber – the twin sisters and the headmistresses of the school Sisters Hope.
