Eberhard Bosslet

Multimedia Art

Eberhard Bosslet concentrates in various manners on a construction based environment in both private and public spaces. For his visually stunning work he uses, almost exclusively, products and techniques derived from those of industrial and commercial reality. The objects he develops visually and aesthetically refer to ‘concrete art’ whilst at the same time essentially maintaining their original functional element. After their presentation all materials of his artworks are to be given back to their original source.

Eberhard Bosslet is an established contemporary German artist and curator. He has been awarded in 1987 with the Bremer Art Award and in  1993 with the Hans-Purrmann Award. He has been presented by the documenta 8 and was invited to numerous exhibitions throughout Europe and the USA. Since 1997 he is Professor for Sculpture & Space Concepts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden.
