Christian Megert

Born in Berne, Switzerland, Christian Megert studied at art school there from 1952-1956. Moving to Sweeden, Germany and Paris, Megert experimented with his artistic style, starting at first in monochrome, and later producing his first kinetic object in 1959.

Focusing primarly on the use of light, movement and reflection, Megert chose mirrors to be his artistic medium of choice, producing his first mirror object in 1960. Much of Megert’s work requires interaction from and with the audience and in a similar fashion to the others Zero group members, the link between art and life and art adn everyday reality is integral to his work.

Megert has been represented in a number of one-man shows including at Galerie Kopke, Copenaghen, in 1959 and 1961 and Galerie Kaspar, Lausanne, in 1963, he also been widely shown with the Zero group and kinetic shows in Europe. His works are today found in a anumber of private and pubblic collections, including the Musée des Beaux Arts, Montreal, Progressive Museum Bale and the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

In 1973 Christian Megert moves to Dusseldorf where he teaches at the Kustakademie until 2002. During this period he makes stone sculptuers shown in Amsterdam, Maastricht and Vaduz. Now he lives and works between Dusseldorf and Bern.
