Wolf Vostell (14 October 1932 in Leverkusen, Germany – 3 April 1998 in Berlin) was a German painter, sculptor, noise music maker and Happening artist of the second half of the 20th century. Wolf Vostell is considered one of the pioneers of video art, environment-sculptures, Happenings and the Fluxus Movement. Techniques such as blurring and the dé-collage are characteristic of his work, as is embedding objects in concrete.
His philosophy was built around the idea that destruction is all around us and it runs through all of the twentieth century. He used the term dé-coll/age (in connection with a plane crash) to refer to the process of tearing down posters, and for the use of mobile fragments of reality.
