Gerhard Rühm (born in 1930 in Vienna) is a virtuoso in the development of intermedia thresholds and expanded forms of media expression. His work poetically combines sculptures, music, literature and performance and, in overcoming ‘traditional’ categories, opens up new aesthetic fields of context. At the same time, Rühm’s work provides intellectual enjoyment and encourages expanded perceptions, in which the fixed ways of speaking and thinking are transcended in a conceptual and humorous way.
