Luis Camnitzer

Born, 1937 in Lübeck,Germany

From the archived Documenta 11 website : www.documenta12.de//archiv/d11/data/english/index.html

“Since the 1960s, Luis Camnitzer’s works in the realm of US- and Latin American conceptual art. Camnitzer is guided by the principle that art can at best be a system analysis and presentation of socially and politically relevant concerns, that due to art’s openness and tentativeness can escape the hegemonic and ideological regimes. Always pointing out his own involvement and implication in his artistic processes such as research and rewriting history, Camnitzer makes ambiguity part of the works’ appearance.”
