Günther Förg 1952-2013
Günther Förg studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich and is part of a post-war generation of German artists who reacted against Modernism. His diverse body of work includes sculpture, painting, printmaking, photography, and drawing, often in combination. Förg was one of the pioneers in exhibiting multi-disciplinary works, pre-dating much of installation art.

Förg is known for the use of brightly saturated solid colours, though one of his most famous series is a body of black-and-white photographs of international Bauhaus architecture, taken between 1980 and 2006.
