Lothar Baumgarten (Rheinberg, Germany, 1944) currently lives and works between Berlin and New York. Student to Joseph Beuys at the Academy of Art in Düsseldorf, his work is best known for its combination of words and images, which simultaneously inquire into photography’s objective gaze and Western representations of the ‘other’. Between 1978 and 1980, Baumgarten spent eighteen months in a Yanomàmi village in southern Venezuela, an experience that continues to inform his work. He has received numerous awards and prizes, prominent among which was the Venice Biennale’s Golden Lion in 1984.
