Performance and sculpture

The site-specific installations of conceptual artist Daniel Knorr, who took part in both the Venice Biennales and documenta exhibitions, caused quite a stir. On the occasion of documenta 14 he had white smoke billow up into the Kassel sky from the chimney of the Zwehrenturm, and at the 2005 Venice Biennale the “empty” pavilion by means of which he represented his native country Romania unleashed a political debate.


Today the artist lives in Berlin and Hong Kong. In addition to projects in the public domain, since the 1990s he has created a multifaceted oeuvre embracing not only photography, but also installation-sculptural works, performances and participatory action art.
