Since 1968, the concept artist Jochen Gerz has included the public in his art. After the media-critical photographic cycle of works and installations, which were displayed in numerous European and American museums, since the 1980s, the artist's projects in public spaces have questioned the traditional passive role of the viewer. Above all, his "antimonuments" on the subject of remembering and suppressing the Holocaust have received great acclaim internationally. Since 2008, Jochen Gerz has lived in Ireland.
