In this illuminated talk, Dieter Löchle will explore how Blake accompanies the daily life and work of an artist.

Born in 1952 in Constance, Southern Germany, Dieter studied literature and art at the Universities of Tübingen, Oxford and Cambridge. Blake has been an ongoing source of inspiration in the spheres of both academic research and in his practice as an artist – a Ph.D. project turned into an exhibition.

Dieter will be passing through London on his way to Yorkshire where he is one of two artists – one German & one British – who are collaborating on a project to mark the beginning of The Great War when battleships shelled the seaside towns of Hartlepool and Scarborough. His earlier Blake inspired exhibitions include ‘Roof’d in from Eternity’ in 1995; the performance projects ‘The Scatter’d Body’ and ‘One Day with WB’ which was realized with dancers and musicians from several European countries; and two calendars ‘Love Sweet Love’ and ‘Glad Day’ published in 2013 and 2014.
