— This is a selection of photographs sent to me over the last 2 years. ‘Geschickt’ in German means ‘well crafted’ and ‘sent’ at the same time. These are photographs by artists and non-artists that I like a lot.
Walter Dahn was born 1954 in St.Tönis/Krefeld, Germany. From 1971 to 1979 he studied at the Art Academy Düsseldorf, being the last master scholar of Joseph Beuys. During the 80’s, Dahn gained an international reputation as one of the leading painters of the artist group MÜLHEIMER FREIHEIT. After exploring a variety of different medias, he now concentrates on painting, taking inspiration from found images, song texts and poetry. In 1995, Walter Dahn was nominated professor of fine arts at the University of Art in Braunschweig, Germany. He lives and works in Cologne.
