Horst Hoheisel was born in 1944 in Poznań, Poland. He lives and works in Kassel, Germany. For more than twenty years, Hoheisel’s work is concerned with the commemoration of victims of the German National Socialist Movement. He developed often together with Andreas Knitz new shapes of monuments, which became internationally known as “negative-monuments” or “counter-memorials.” Besides landmarks of memory in public space, his works are in the collections of several international museums, such as The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Jewish Museum, New York; Yad Vashem, Jerusalem, Jewish Museum Berlin; Deutsches Historisches Museum (German Historical Museum), Berlin, German Resistance Memorial Center, Berlin, and Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Kassel (Kassel State Art Collections).
