Hans-Peter Feldman (Born 1941 Dusseldorf, Germany) Lives and works in Dusseldorf. Conceptualist Feldmann earned an insider's reputation in Europe during the late 1960s and early 1970s for his understated play with books, photographs and found materials. Feldmann wants to undermine the myth of the artist as genius, and introduces everyday objects into his art. There are no originals in his work; his objects, books and magazines, photos and posters are unlimited, unsigned editions.


Hans-Peter Feldmann is a major figure in the conceptual art movement and a pre-eminent practitioner in the artist book and multiple formats. Feldmann's approach to art-making is one of collecting, ordering and re-presenting. Culling imagery from the swollen vernacular of amateur snapshots, print photographic reproductions, toys and trivial works of art, Feldmann reproduces and recontextualizes our reading of them in books, postcards, posters or multiples. These gestures create inventories documenting the ephemeral aspects and unattended moments that in the end make up our everyday existence.
