Heinrich Brummack

Heinrich Brummack

Like his work, Heinrich Brummack (born 1936), is not easy to fit into the recognised trends of contemporary art: Humorous, ironic, monumental and reduced, but also representational and based on traditions, in any event sculptural and paying attention to form, his true subject is the questionability of authority and hierarchy. Initially his works seem playful and light, but soon subversive anarchy is to be seen. From 1982 until his retirement, Brummack taught Plastic Sculpture and Design at the Design faculty of the Münster Senior Technical College.
