Introduction
Born in Suriname, Brouwn moved to Amsterdam in 1957. Most of his work was conceptual in nature, such as claiming all the shoe stores in Amsterdam an artwork. For most of his career, he also declined to give interviews or be photographed. He taught at the Kunstakademie Hamburg, had a major retrospective in 2005 at the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, and was also included in Documenta 5, 6, 7, and 11.
