Daniel Spoerri (born 1930)
Born in Romania, Daniel Spoerri emigrated with his mother, a Swiss citizen, to Switzerland in 1942. In Zurich and later in Paris, he studied classical dance and pantomime. In the 1950s, Spoerri worked as an assistant director to Gustav Rudolf Sellner at the State Theatre in Darmstadt. In 1959, he moved to Paris and met Jean Tinguely, Arman, Yves Klein and Francois Dufrêne. He founded the ‘Edition MAT’ and published his first multiples. In addition, he produced his first objects, especially the famous ‘Tableaux Pièges’. In 1960, Spoerri co-founded the group ‘New Realism’. In 1968, he established the ‘Eat-Art Edition’ and opened a restaurant in Düsseldorf, which existed until 1972. There, he performed with Joseph Beuys, Ben Vautier and Dieter Roth and other major artists. From 1978 to 1982, Spoerri taught ‘Three-dimensional Design’ at the Cologne Werkschulen, and from 1983 to 1989 he was a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich. In 2009, he opened the restaurant ‘Eat Art’ and the exhibition center ‘Ab Art’ in Hadersdorf am Kamp. Spoerri's works are on display in many important museum collections, including the Tate, the MoMA, the Museum Ludwig, Cologne, the Centre Georges Pompidou and the MUMOK in Vienna.
