Adolfo Schlosser was born in Leitersdorf (Austria) in 1939. He studied Sculpture at the School of Applied Arts in Graz, and between 1957 and 1959, studied Painting at the Fine Arts Academy in Vienna. Having spent four years in Iceland, where he alternately wrote and fished, he returned to Vienna, where he started to practice hörspiel (audio games) and, in the early 1960s, he produced his first sculptural works. In the mid-sixties Adolfo Schlosser left Vienna and moved to Madrid with the sculptor Eva Lootz, where he lived in the locality of Bustarviejo until his death in 2004. In the capital he came into contact with the Galería Buades, where he found a favourable environment for the development of his artistic ideas. It is also in this Madrilenian circle that he started “Humo” magazine, with Juan Navarro Baldeweg, Eva Lootz and Patricio Bulnes. In 1991 he received the Premio Nacional de Artes Plásticas, thus recognising the important role he played within the Spanish sculptural scene. The artist has works installed in the following public places: the Palacio de la Magdalena, Santander; the Estación RENFE, Santander; the Plaza Centenario, San Sebastián; the Campus de la Universidad Politécnica, Valencia and the Campus de la Universidad de Torrelavega, Santander. His work can be found in many public collections, such MNCARS, Madrid; MACBA, Barcelona; CAC, Seville and CGAC, Santiago de Compostela. On February 2006, the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía presented a mayor retrospective of his work.
