The sculptor, painter and printmaker Siegfried Neuenhausen (* 1931) studied philosophy and painting. In addition to his exhibition, he was visiting professors in the United States and Indonesia. Since the 1970s, he is involved in social projects. He received 1st class Merit of the Federal Cross.

He articulated his own form of social critique in his sculptures but never completely and with a fine irony. It leaves space for interpretations and projections.

Because these small format-sculptures can participate in the life, fits in any place and always are object of contemplation, of haptic and of conversation. It is a high quality of and Neuenhausens "thumbnail still images” are not one-dimensional, impose no "vision" to the viewer, but rather remain open for their own interpretations and projections. The question arises, who protect the boundaries that surround his sculptures, the environment from the people or the people for the environment.

The artist designed situations without humorous, which he has won through the accurate observation of people and their behaviour in everyday life the type of "man", in his work we always meet again, wears a coat and hat.

Designation for an art object (sculpture, installation), which is produced according to the will of the artist in multiple copies in a limited and numbered edition.

Artist's multiple contributed to "democratization" of art as the work was made available and affordable for a wider audience.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

Collective term for all casting processes that ars mundi carries out with the help of specialized art foundries.

Cast stone
Equivalent of artificial marble, with the difference that the substitute stone in powder form is used instead of marble powder.

Cold cast bronze
Bronze powder bound by a polymer. By special polishing and patination techniques the surface of the casting gets a look that corresponds to the bronze.

ARA wooden copy
In order to guarantee absolute fidelity to the original, an artificially manufactured imitation wood is used as a base material which has typical wood characteristics: density, workability, color and surface structure.

Ceramic casting
As a rule castable clay is used in ceramic casting, which then is fired and possibly glazed. Plaster molds are often used instead of the usual rubber molds in ceramic casting and in porcelain production.

Bronze casting
In this case, the thousand-year-old lost-wax technique is used. It's the best, but also the most complex method of producing sculptures.
