John Baldessari

 

John Baldessari ist ein amerikanischer Konzeptkünstler, der als Pionier bei der Verwendung vorgefundenen Bildmaterials gilt. Indem Baldessari Fotografie, Malerei und Text mischt, testet er die Grenzen von Kunstgattungen und übt gleichzeitig Kulturkritik. „Ich habe mich oft für einen frustrierten Schriftsteller gehalten“, sagt Baldessari. „Ich halte Worte und Bilder für gleichbedeutend, und vieles in meiner Arbeit entstammt dieser Art zu denken.“ Mit seinen vielfältigen Arbeiten, zu denen Gemälde, Skulpturen und Installationen gehören, hat Baldessari die Konzeptkunst gemeinsam mit Joseph Kosuth und Hans Haacke geprägt. Schon früh bekam er Kritikerlob für die Verwendung von bunten Punkten auf Fotografien, eines seiner Markenzeichen. Geboren am 17. Juni 1931 in der südkalifornischen Stadt National City, wurde Baldessari zu einem wichtigen Mitglied der Kunstszene an der amerikanischen Westküste. Er beeinflusste zudem viele jüngere Künstler während seiner langen Karriere als Hochschullehrer. Zu seinen Schülern an der privaten Hochschule California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) gehörten in den 1970er Jahren David Salle, Mike Kelley und Tony Oursler. Der gefeierte Künstler hat für sein Lebenswerk den Goldenen Löwen der Biennale von Venedig erhalten. Baldessari lebt in Santa Monica und arbeitet in Venice, beides Stadtteile im Westen von Los Angeles.
