Daniel Luedtke is an interdisciplinary artist and musician. His work addresses how illness affects a person’s experience of the world. Within a range of formal strategies, from printmaking, drawing, mixed media sculpture, installation and video, he uses collage and assemblage to illustrate how medical and insurance industries create and arrange our understanding of health and wellness.
Luedtke’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in galleries and museums such as the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the Tom of Finland Foundation in Los Angeles, the Museum of Art and Design in New York, and NP3 Gallery in the Netherlands. His work has been published in printmaking anthologies by Chronicle Books and Princeton Architectural Press. Previously, Luedtke was a Lecturer in the Contemporary Practices Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
