Clemens Weiss was born 1955 near Düsseldorf/Germany and studied in the years 1974–1984 philosophy, art, medicine and engineering, but also worked continually as an artist since 1974.

After preparing in Europe some bodies of work in studios in Krefeld, Mönchengladbach and Vienna, he permanently moved in 1987 to New York and started to exhibit his work at the Ronald Feldman Gallery and the Anderson Gallery, -the Museum of the University of Virginia.
Since then his often large-scale Installations were shown in numerous Solo and Group Exhibitions in Museums in the United States in Europe, as the 20th Century, one hundred years of Art in Germany at the National Museum in Berlin 1999/2000, the Joseph Haubrich Kunsthalle in 1989, Cologne/Germany or the Museum Schloss Morsbroich, Leverkusen, Germany in 2001.
Frequent gallery exhibitions and representations are since 1988 with the Ronald Feldman Gallery in New York and galleries in Mönchengladbach, Cologne, Berlin, Friedrichshafen and Gelsenkirchen.
The installations by Clemens Weiss often are seen as explorations and expressions of complex structures or issues; segments of these installations contain sometimes countless individual drawings, writings, objects, paintings, sculptures and other art works.

In September 1996 his Sculpture Regarding Non-Proliferation of Atomic Weapon, the first public sculpture was a official present of the Federal German Republic to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland on occasion of the treaty on ending nuclear testing.
This sculpture contains 42 of the most crucial texts and information of the nuclear age, including all international nuclear treaties, previously secret military studies and the speech by the artist given to the delegations to the nuclear disarmament conference.

Also in 1996, G.L.A.S.S.. a theatrical construction, a exhibition + performance in collaboration with the Prinz-Regenten Theater based on the artwork of Clemens Weiss was performed first in Bochum/Germany, then traveled to different other art spaces and theater festivals.
Clemens Weiss acts also as curator of transatlantic art projects as the New York Edition 1991 of the Juni Verlag in Mönchengladbach/Germany, the American Box 1997 for Galerie Schröder, Cologne, and the Denver Box 2009 for the RedLine Foundation in Denver/Colorado

He realized numerous artist books such as The Complaint of Art (Juni-Verlag 1990) that later also became the base for another Theater project (World premiere at Ensemblia 1997 under his direction in Mönchengladbach, and in a new version in Aachen/Germany in 2011).
His work is included in numerous private and public collections as the Museum of modern Art in New York, the Folkwang Museum in Essen/Germany, the Deutsche Bank Collection and the Pushkin Museum in Moscow/Russia among others.

Clemens Weiss lives and works in New York City.
