Biography

Bernhard Prinz, born in 1953 in Fürth, Germany, studied art history and painting in Erlangen and Nuremberg between 1975 and 1981. He lives and works in Hamburg. Since 2005 he teaches at the Kunsthochschule Kassel (Kassel Art University). He has become internationally known for his photographic portraits. These are reduced to essential generalized forms, that are reminiscent rather of classical paintings than of photographs.

Prinz has gained numerous prizes and awards since he appeared in the international art scene in the early 1980s. He presented his series of works - some with installation elements - in numorous solo and group exhibitions such as documenta8 Kassel (1987), Serpentine Gallery, London (1988) , Vienna Secession (1990), Hamburger Kunsthalle (1996), Museum Folkwang Essen (2003).
