Overview

Michael Müller lives and works in Berlin. He studied sculpture with Magdalena Jetelová at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Germany. Since 2015, he has been a professor at the Berlin University of the Arts. Müller’s work develops out of existing historical narratives, methods and norms - systems which he pushes to their limits by modifying them along fictitious lines. His practice engages with the pictorialization of complex thought processes, whose transformation by various methods constitutes a slow and patient appropriation. Although primarily known for his drawings and paintings, Müller's approach merges media such as sculpture, installation and performative art with curatorial practice itself. Galerie du Monde presented Müller’s first exhibition in Hong Kong and East Asia in 2018 – “An Exhibition as a Copy”, which showcased over twenty conceptual multimedia works that are emblematic of Müller’s artistic pursuit for exploring the intrinsic relationship between the original and the copy.
