Opening: Saturday, 25th April 2005, 4 pm

Heinz Mack was born in 1931 in Lollar (Hesse). He studied artistic education and philosophy in Düsseldorf and Cologne. In 1957 he founded the group ZERO in Düsseldorf together with artist friends. In subsequent years he realised several art-light projects in the Sahara and the Arctic, designing stage designs (i.e. “Tristan and Isold” and “leux” by Debussy), creating interior designs for churches and other buildings, realising monumental sculpture on public squares as well as contributing to the world exhibitions in Montreal and Osaka. All this only represents some examples out of the full array of his artistic activities. His works are to be found in many public collections around the world.

Throughout his life Heinz Mack has been working with the medium glass next to his extensive sculptural and painterly work.

In 2004 Heinz Mack has realised around 30 new glass sculptures and a number of free glass panels (made from antique-glass and fusing-glass) for the exhibition in the German Stained-Glass Museum. The glass sculptures tend towards the architectural as they evoke thoughts about modern architecture of the 20th century.
