Ulf Langheinrich

was born in 1960, in Wolfen, Sachsen Anhalt, Germany.

After removal from the register of students at the University of Design in Halle due to his denial to accept post-duty participation in East German Army service - mandatory for male students - he applied to give off his GDR citizenship and eventually moved to West Germany in 1984.

While being a student at Gesamthochschule Kassel for Painting, he set up a studio for electronic music, developed the basics of his musical language and engaged in painting, drawing and photography. In 1988, he left for Vienna where a studio at the WUK (Werkst├Ątten und Kulturhaus) was put at his disposal. From 1988 to 1991, he devoted himself again to regular painting and drawing, had a solo exhibition at Kunsthalle Exnergasse and released a catalogue of his work.
