Biography Christian Roeckenschuss
Born in 1929 in Dresden, the artist Christian Roeckenschuss first studied piano and singing at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Dresden: this early experience would shape his artistic production. He then began to study painting at the Berlin Hochschule für Bildende Künste. There, through his teachers he became acquainted with the art and theories of the Bauhaus and Abstract Art. This analysis formed the basis of his future artistic work. He first produced figurative work, but quickly moved to abstract painting, and became one of the most important exponents of Geometric Abstraction and Minimal Art. In 1974 he became a member of the Berlin group "Systema", which saw itself as a reaction to the Neorealism dominant in the post war period.
