Reina Sofia Museum Opens an Exhibition of Art by Hans-Peter Feldmann


MADRID.- When Hans-Peter Feldmann is asked to provide details of his career he generally limits himself to one piece of information: that he was born in Hilden, Düsseldorf, in 1941. If encouraged to offer further details, he considers it more interesting to supply a list of the films that he likes rather than the usual list of his exhibitions, which merely demonstrates his notable presence on the international art scene. From the late 1960s to the present day, Hans-Peter Feldmann’s work has defined a very personal way of being. For example, he generally entitles his exhibitions “An exhibition of art”. This seems an obvious description but, like many of his brief titles, it is also an affirmation. The artist is letting us know that everything that we see in his exhibitions is art.
