Thomas Hirschhorn (b. 1957 Bern, lives in Paris) is one of the most controversial artist in contemporary art. The artist uses cheap packaging, mannequins, shock, photos from newspapers and the Internet, silver foil, acrylic glass and wood product to reflect on the kitsch and trash of mass media images. "Chaos is the world in which I live." Hirschhorn's artistic provocations does not only deal with the political and social condition of our society but also with the complacency of the art in question.
