Walter Beckers

Walter Beckers was a Belgian Artist, born in 1929 in Antwerp. He developed a long career as an artist, art collector, and a publisher. Following the sale of his publishing businesses in 1977, Beckers embarked on a full time artistic journey which incorporated his fascination with the literary world – both ideally and physically. Among his more prominent artistic achievements was the completion in 1995 of the permanent installation Ein Stein, Ich bin Ein Stein, on the roof of the Muhka Museum of Contemporary Art in Antwerp.
