Alfred Steiner on the Practice of Law & the Practice of Art

Season 1, Ep. 624

In this episode, Alfred Steiner, a lawyer at Mauriel Kapouytian Woods and an artist, discusses the relationship between his legal and artistic practices, especially his work in conceptual art. Steiner begins by describing his background as an artist and how he became a lawyer. He reflects how his legal practice informs his artistic practice, and vice versa. And he describes some of his works of conceptual art that reflect on and illuminate legal doctrine and practice, including copyright and economics of the art market. Steiner is on Twitter at @alfredsteiner.
