Kurt Petz was born in Munich in 1945 where he studied Fine Arts, Art History and Philosophy. His work is multidisciplinary not in terms of finished pieces but also as creative impulse and starting point. He works with basic elements and materials to give them a strong conceptual dimension.
He was married and worked together for many years with the artist Verena Kraft, with whom they developed a rich collaborative experience under the sign kraftpetz.
Together hey participated in exhibitions and festivals around the world such as in Zimabue, Bosnia, Cuba and in many venues in Europe. They developed a personal performance language that is strongly connected to the materiality of visual arts.
