Hans-Peter Feldmann (born 1941, Dusseldorf) rose to prominence in the early 1970s, earning worldwide acclaim for his expansive and encyclopaedic photographic series. Often presented in the form of books, posters, postcards and gallery installations, these collections link Feldmann's life-long fascination with collecting to his practice as an archivist of visual culture. His exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery will be his first solo presentation in a UK public gallery since winning the 2010 Hugo Boss Prize.
Feldmann's work has been widely exhibited internationally, including solo exhibitions at Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2011), Museo Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid (2010), Arnolfini, Bristol (2007), Museum Ludwig, Cologne (2003) and Musée d'Art Moderne de la ville de Paris (1992). His work has been shown in numerous group exhibitions, including the Venice Biennale in 2009 and 2003, Take Me I'm Yours, curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist at the Serpentine Gallery in 1995, and Documenta in 1977 and 1972.
