Lebt und arbeitet in Düsseldorf. 1968 gibt Feldmann die Malerei auf und beginnt seine konzeptionelle Auseinandersetzung mit der Fotografie.
With this comprehensive retrospective of the work of the 62-year-old ‘anti-photo-artist’ (as he is described in the exhibition’s publicity material) several generations’ worth of anonymous pictorial products have found their way into the Museum Ludwig. Placed side by side along the wall of the museum are colour copies made by Feldmann of publicity photographs signed by assorted stars of yesteryear. Pictures of Romy Schneider, who starred as the Austrian Empress Sissi in West Germany’s most successful family film of the 1950s, are followed by former 1970s Bundesliga football stars, their blue jerseys as faded as their glory.
