Franz Ackermann at Faena Arts Center, Buenos Aires
German artist Franz Ackermann’s most recent work is a 2800 square feet site-specific work. The piece that he created for the Molinos Room of Faena Arts Center in Buenos Aires consists of 20 panels of painted wood. It’s Franz Ackermann’s biggest mural ever. For this artwork, Ackermann spent several weeks in Buenos Aires to get to know the city, photographing it, and conceiving the piece.
Franz Ackermann was born in Neumarkt St. Veit, Germany, in 1963. He studied art at the Akademie er Bildenden Kunste in Munich and Hochschule für Bildende Kunst in Hamburg. To create his works, he uses photographs and sketches. Traveling is one of the fundamental parts of his work. He creates mental maps, which then are transformed into compositions of color and form. He has had solo exhibitions at Kunstmuseum Bonn, Irish Museum of Modern Art, National Museum Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago, among others. His works can be found in important collections such as Daimler Contemporary Berlin and Inho- tim Center of Contemporary Art, Minas Gerais.
