Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Christian Boltanski was born in occupied Paris in 1944 to a Jewish father and a Corsican mother. He is known for a body of work that may be considered a disturbing archive of our social, cultural, ethnic, and personal histories. His death-obsessed creations have earned him an international reputation. He has spent his artistic life working with the most ephemeral of materials -- newspaper clippings, photographs, found snapshots, clothing, candles, light bulbs, old biscuit tins to examine and mar (showing 500 of 4966 characters).
