Otto Piene (DE) was born in 1928 and is most known for his colourful paintings and gigantic open air sculptures, including the 600-metre-long Olympic Rainbow that lit up the Munich sky at the end of the 1972 Olympics. Piene founded the influential European post-war movement Group Zero with Heinz Mack in 1957 as part of an effort to transform and redefine art in the aftermath of the Second World War. From 1974 to 1993 Piene was the director of the MIT Center for Advanced Visual Studies. He obtained an honorary doctorate from the University of Maryland, the Leonardo da Vinci Prize, and a 1996 award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Piene passed away in 2014.
