Michael Müller Biography

Michael Müller was born in 1970 in Ingelheim am Rhein, Germany. He went on to study sculpting and fine arts at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf with Magdalena Jetelová. Today, he is primarily known for his drawings, even though he continuously broadens the methods of his artistic expression, combining works on paper with sculptural pieces in installation. Quite often the artist will incorporate works by other artists and found objects or materials.

“As I am completely aware of the fact that in any case, there is only one way of deriving the reality of infinitely many, it remains a permanent task to double-check the implemented works. And perhaps this is ultimately one of the acknowledgements (…): the bliss of comprehension and failure. Thus, art, even beyond such limitations, for me is an ethical obligation in the social domain, for only after having read the observer, does its political character become evident.”

Next to numerous gallery shows, Müller has participated in many group exhibitions in the last ten years, within Germany and internationally. Among others, he has been included in shows at the Landart Biennial in Ulan Bator, Mongolia (2010), the Kunstsaele in Berlin (2010), the Kunstmuseum Kloster unser lieben Frauen in Magdeburg (2010), and in the Kunsthalle in Kiel (2010). Recently, his works have been shown at the Kunsthaus Dresden (2012) and in the Kunst- und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik (2013).

The artist lives and works in Berlin.
