Volkmar Haase

1930-2012

His several metre-high steel sculptures made the German sculptor Volkmar Haase world-famous. More than 60 of his works can be found in public places in German metropolises. Major museums such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York City or the Lehmbruck Museum Duisburg also exhibit his works.

The trademark of the "steel-wire walker" is the playful arrangement of strict, geometric forms with round, soft lines, which gives the works an unexpected lightness. According to Haase, many of his sculptures stand on just one point, the "zero points", from which they "start and unfold upwards and swing into space".
