Jiří Georg Dokoupil is one of the world’s most versatile contemporary artists. He was born in 1954 in Krnov. After the invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Soviet army in 1968, his family fled to Germany where from the 1970s onwards he became one of the protagonists of the world art scene. He was a major proponent of German Neo-Expressionism. His oeuvre is characterized by ambiguity and resistance to labels. It bears traces of expressionism and post-modernism but is also influenced by Dada or conceptual art. The key element of his work is experiment.
