Curriculum Vitae

Ingo Vetter is a visual artist working with sculpture, photography and installations. He exhibits internationally and often collaborates with other artists, resulting in long term engagements like the Detroit Tree of Heaven Woodshop. An interest in city development and concepts of public space lead to research projects and consultancies like his current commission for a public park in Kiruna, a mining city in the very north of Sweden.

He teaches sculpture at the University of the Arts Bremen with a specific focus on artistic materials and production in globalization. Most recently he and his students published the book Umsetzen/Übersetzen (Transform/Translate), a report on Asian production sites used to manufacture international art.

Ingo Vetter lives with his son in Bremen, Germany and is represented by the Gallery K’
