Hans Peter Adamski

1947 Kloster Oesede

Hans-Peter Adamski, a German painter, who has also recently worked in video, photography and installation. After completing his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Düsseldorf, he travelled to Afganistan, Indonesia and India (1974-1979). In the early 70s, he collaborated with Depot, an artistic group from Cologne. A decade later, he was a key member of another movement, Mülheimer Freiheit, together with Jiri Georg Dokoupil, Walter Dahn and Peter Bömmels. “Squares of Longing” (2008) is one of his recent series referring to Kazmir Malevich’s “Black Square” and, consequently, reflecting on the 100 years of art history after the famous painting. Adamski’s works are widely exhibited and represented internationally by galleries such as Galerie Paul Maenz in Cologne, Sonnabend Gallery in New York, Kunstmuseum in Basel and Bern, among others. Since 1997, he is a professor at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts, currently living and working in Berlin and Dresden.
