Jonathan Meese is a German artist born in 1970.
In 1998 he participated to the Berlin Biennale, exhibiting the installation titled “Ahoi der Angst”, a photographic collage dedicated to Marquis de Sade. In 2003, thanks to his friend and artist Daniel Richter, the Contemporary Fine Arts gallery in Berlin organized a solo exhibition titled “Young Americans” and in 2004 a double solo show “Spezialbilder Jonathan Meese / Albert Oehlen”. In 2014 the Miami Museum of Contemporary Art (MoCA) presented his first major exhibition in the United States. His work is featured in several international museums including the Georges Pompidou Center in Paris, the Hall Art Foundation in New York, the Musées de la Ville de Strasbourg, the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst (S.M.A.K.) in Gent, and in important private collections such as the Rubell family collection and the De La Cruz collection in Miami.
