About the artist

Horst Ademeit (1937–2010), was a German artist . He first trained as a house painter and then worked in textile design before becoming a student of artist Joseph Beuys in 1970. His work focused on documenting the immediately available: everyday objects, news, and confinements.


1990 – 2004

During the last 40 years of his life, Horst Ademeit documented the harmful influence of what he called “cold rays” on himself using annotated photographs. This set forms part of a complex archive of everyday information, in which the artist tries to establish order in a seemingly chaotic world.
