Renowned German Artist and Curator and
Expert on International Modern Art Projects
A native German living and working in New York, Mr. Clemens Weiss is one of Germany's leading international artists in the field of contemporary art. His sculpture ‘regarding non-proliferation of atomic weapons’ has been acquired by the Federal Republic of Germany as an official gift to the United Nations and now marks the entrance to the Chamber in Geneva where the treaty on ending nuclear testing was negotiated. Recent projects include a large size sculpture in the Church St. Marien in Prenzlau/Brandenburg for the Art-Project: ‘Interventionen, Stadt-Raum-Kirche’ - now a permanent installation in Prenzlau, Germany.
He exhibits regularly in New York, the United States and Europe, and his work was included in the important exhibition ‘The XX. Century, 100 Years of Art in Germany’ at the Nationalgalerie in Berlin, Germany.
He has also worked extensively in the field of theatre and publishing, and has curated numerous art-projects both in the United States and Germany.
In his lectures, Mr. Weiss focuses on contemporary art issues from philosophical to practical perspectives, but also the cultural and structural differences between Europe and the United States.
Through his long-time intimate knowledge of both the United States and Germany in many areas, he has served in advisory function on a wide range of transatlantic topics for researchers, organizations and governments.
