Space is limited and offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Johannes Stüttgen was born in 1945 in Frývaldov, Czechoslovakia (now Jeseník, Czech Republic). From 1966 to 1971, he studied under Joseph Beuys at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, where he was also a colleague of Jörg Immendorff, Imi Knoebel, and Blinky Palermo. With Beuys, Stüttgen founded the art action initiative Omnibus for Direct Democracy in Germany and remained a close collaborator until the artist’s death in 1986. Stüttgen later became the managing director of the Free International University for Creativity and Interdisciplinary Research, and head of Raum 3, Beuys’s former studio at the Kunstakademie. In 2004 Stüttgen received an honorary fellowship from Oxford Brookes University for his work on social sculpture, a theory pioneered by Beuys to expand the notion of art into the everyday. He is a cofounder and chairman of Kinderstern (Star for Children), a nonprofit organization serving children in need through the sale of the Imi Knoebel’s work of the same name in an unlimited edition. Stüttgen lives and works in Düsseldorf.    Dia Beacon FALSE DD/MM/YYYY Johannes Stüttgen on Imi Knoebel
