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.
Timm Ulrichs: Ich bin im Bilde
A rare limited edition of the portable collection of post-war and contemporary art La Lune en Rodage III. This is an unnumbered copy of 230 editions (65 hors commerce were unnumbered) and part of the third serie of the La Lune en Rodage books. La Lune en Rodage was published in three volumes in 1960, 1965 and 1977 containing a total of approximately 180 art pieces which provide an account of the artistic avant-garde scene between the 1950s and 1970s. The art works were gathered by Carl Laslzo and included the greatest artists of the time who contributed with important pieces, often marking a turning point in their production and carriers: Enrico Castellani’s work for example is his first documented graphic work and Piero Manzoni's multiple Achrome is the only one produced by the artist.
