Gunther Uecker

The sculptor, kinetic artist, and set designer G?nther Uecker was born on March 13, 1930, in Wendorf, Germany. Between the years 1949 and 1953, he studied painting at the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee and then continued his artistic education under Otto Pangkok at the Kunstakademie D?sseldorf, Germany, in 1955. Throughout the 1950s, Uecker sought out philosophies that he felt preached simplicity and purity, such as Buddhism, Taoism, and Islam. His fascination with purification rituals, such as the Gregorian chant, led him to engage in his own rituals of repetition, such as the hammering of nails for extended periods of time.
