39 Difficult Questions for Stefan Sagmeister

This publication documents a year- long seminar held by the ICA and University of Pennsylvania's Center for Programs in Contemporary Writing. Each year the program invites an artist to participate in a seminar that engages the blurry distinctions between art and life. 2011-12's participant was Stefan Sagmeister, whose multi-year project on happiness creates a sort of backdrop for the seminar. Each student contributes texts and a 'pataphysical index to the two-part interview held with Sagmeister. These texts are interspersed with photographs of the interview by Andrew Moisey.
