Biography

Timm Ulrichs, born 1940 in Berlin, lives in Hannover, is considered one of the most influential German conceptual and action artists. He writes concrete poetry, makes performance art, and works as a sculptor. Ulrichs founded the Werbezentrale für Totalkunst, Banalismus und Extemporismus (Advertising Centre for Total Art, Banality, and Extemporaneity) in Hanover in 1961. Since then he has promoted the distribution, development and production of his concept of “Total Art” through actions, performances, objects and installations. He describes it as a “reflexive aesthetic process that sensitizes and questions patterns of perception and world views”. Long before Andy Warhol, he described himself as a “Total Artist”, a living work of art.

Timm Ulrichs’s first self-exhibition had a decisive influence on body art in German-speaking countries: in the 1960s and 70s, several of his colleagues appeared with similar actions. In retrospective, it was almost a chain reaction of self-exhibitions: from Jochen Gerz, Valie Export, Joseph Beuys to Arnulf Rainer and Günther Brus all the way to Marina Abramovich.
