Having done research in medieval manuscripts, Brody Neuenschwander completed his doctorate on the methodology of German art history in 1986 at the Courtauld Institute in London, while studying calligraphy at the Roehampton Institute. This crossed education carried him to become a professional calligrapher with a passion for the relationship between writing and language.
Among other things he talked to us about tools, the different ways of teaching writing to children in school nowadays, the presence of calligraphy in art and how to deliver messages through the written words –as he did for Peter Greenaway’s movies; contributing with a very valuable insight into the role of calligraphy in society.
Recorded at the Letterheads Amsterdam Signpainters conference, 2016
