Hans-Peter Feldmann (b. 1941, Germany) is a conceptual artist and compulsive collector who appropriates his findings to create typological series characterized by their humour, simplicity and directness. Feldmann is known for his objection to the commercialization of the art world. He rebels against the randomness in which modern culture determines the value of objects by refusing to number his works or limit his series. Feldmann is also known for his books and prints – his visual articles are as broad and endless as the majority of his works, and he continues to collect, create and print them. Works by Feldmann have been shown extensively, including at the Documenta in Kassel. He received the Guggenheim Museum’s Hugo Boss prize in 2010.
