Thomas Schütte

Thomas Schütte
born 1954 Oldenburg,Germany

Thomas Schütte is an important German contemporary artist. From 1973 to 1981 he studied art at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf under Gerhard Richter and Fritz Schwegler. From September 24, 1998 to June 18, 2000 The Dia Center For The Arts mounted a three part survey of Schütte's work. The first, "Scenewright" (September 24, 1998 - January 24, 1999) focused on theater-related projects. "Gloria in Memoria" (February 4 - June 13, 1999) dealt with death with a somewhat morbid sense of humor, as in his memorial to Alain Colas which pictures the famous sailor and daredevil bobbing in the water, surprised at his own death. The third installment, "In Media Res," included large ceramic heads and massive, battered bronze nudes.
