Hannes Neubauer, born in 1979 in Marktredwitz, has been travelling internationally as a steel sculptor for many years. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Design at the College for Recognized Sciences and Arts in Hildesheim and completed a master’s program titled “Art in public places and new artistic strategies” (MfA) at the Bauhaus University in Weimar and in Belo Horizonte in Brazil.
He also often works abroad: in 2017 he was part of numerous sea rescues on the coast of Libya. He is distinguished as the “Kultur- und Kreativpilot Deutschland 2011.”
Water holds a special meaning for Hanne Neubauer, less in a artistic, poetic way, but more from a socio-political perspective, something real and essential. A video made during his sea rescue assignment at the Libyan coast can be seen as an installation and could give the viewer goosebumps.
