Luis Camnitzer does not have an image.
(Lübeck, Germany, 1937 - )
Born 1937, Lübeck, Germany; active 1939–61, Montevideo, Uruguay; 1961, New York; 1974, Italy and Great Neck, NY. As one of the leading figures of the conceptual art movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s in Latin America, he was concerned with the patterns of behavior that guide the viewer in front of a work of art making him a participant in the production of meaning. Camnitzer works with various materials that allow him to create both three-dimensional and large-scale works. He believes in the production of FANDOS (Free Assemblage Non-functional Disposable Serial Objects) that not only emphasize the political function of the work, but also serve to strip art of its market value, eliminating the high cost and pompous ritual that separates it from its audience.
