Introduction

Hans-Peter Klie (* 19. November 1956 in Göttingen, Lower Saxony) lives in Berlin since 1976. He is a German painter, photographer, concept-, media- and installation artist.

The work of Hans-Peter Klie is formally divided into various different phases, the connecting element of all sections of his work since 1980 are mostly philosophical thoughts, often the relationship between picture and text is visually reflected as well as language-philosophical approach.

Due to the diversity of his work it can not be allocated to one particular style in form and content. However it refers to basic positions of Modern Art, to aspects of surrealism and mostly to Post Modern Art. It also connects to philosophical thoughts of various centuries (Blaise Pascal, Michel de Montaigne, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, Friedrich Nietzsche, Ferdinand de Saussure, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Jean-François Lyotard, Jacques Derrida, Vilém Flusser u. a.).

For Klie art and philosophy are related disciplines. This also shows in his own writing, which often evolves in direct connection to his artistic work or is a part of it.
