b. 1940 (Berlin, DE), lives and works in Hannover, DE

Timm 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.
