Hans Hs Winkler is a German artist, (*1955 in Rott am Inn).


From 1988 to 2000 he worked in collaboration with artist Stefan Micheel under the label "p.t.t.red". With p.t.t.red , he knocked off the peak of the highest German mountain, the Zugspitze, brought the stone into a Berlin gallery, and crushed it in a concrete mixer. Since 2000 he realized projects and interventions in the public space like „the escape of the Iceman/Ötzi“ (Eurac, Museion Bolzano, 2008), „granizza“ (Dialog Loci, Kostryzn, 2004) or „un incidente in gondola“ (Nuova Icona, Venice, 2002). He co-curated shows like „legal/ Illegal“ at NGBK, Berlin, 2004, or „looking for mushrooms“ at the Museum Ludwig, Cologne, 2008. He published the „walking newspaper“ in different cities like Istanbul, Johannesburg, New York, Havana, Bonn or San Francisco. Hans Winkler lives in Berlin and New York.
