Galerie Thomas Zander is pleased to present its first solo exhibition of works by Jürgen Klauke. Klauke is a pioneer of conceptual, staged photography and has been a formative influence on its strategies of performance and body art since the early 1970s. He often puts his body at the center of his formally composed tableaus and sequences, using it as subject and vessel to test the boundaries between life and art, to challenge conventional social roles and gender identities. In 1977 and 1987 Klauke participated in documenta, his work was included in Harald Szeemann’s special exhibition Aperto 80 at the Venice Biennale in 1980 and he is recognised as one of the most important contemporary artists in Germany today.
