DANIEL KNORR (1968 Bucharest) is regarded as one of the most innovative concept artists of his generation. In the past, the site-specific installations of this artist, who took part in both the Venice Biennales and documenta exhibitions, caused quite a stir. On the occasion of documenta 14, for example, 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. As an overall view of Daniel Knorr’s oeuvre has so far been lacking, despite his individual works being on show in exhibitions, art fairs and the public realm over the past decades, the Kunsthalle Tübingen is now providing an overview with a particular focus on the artist’s most recent work groups.
