Claes Oldenburg (* 1929, Stockholm, Sweden) has not only been a major artist in Pop Art, Performance Art and Installation Art but, in partnership with Coosje van Bruggen, also a strong influence on art in public spaces with his monumental Large Scale Projects in numerous major cities worldwide. With his humorous and profound depictions of everyday objects he is one of the most important and admired artists since the late 1950s.
We were allowed to accompany the artist during his setup of the exhibition "Claes Oldenburg - The 60s" at the mumok in Vienna. Thanks for trusting us!!
