Gustav Metzger - Profil

Born in Nuremberg, Germany in 1926 to Polish-Jewish parents, Metzger was evacuated to England as part of the Kindertransport in 1939. For 60 years, Metzger has practiced as a vehemently political artist and activist, with work spanning from the conception of auto-destructive art and the production of political manifestos to the initiation of strikes against consumerist markets, including the art world and the airline industry. Taking up art, politics, ecology, science and technology, Metzger critiques capitalist, industrialized society and systems of control, reflecting his discerningly adept perception on the rapidly changing world, contextualized by his experience of some of the twentieth century's most devastating events.
