Since 1968, the German artist Ulay has been exploring identity and the body through a series of polaroids, aphorisms and performances. His photographic approach has become increasingly performance-based, and with Fototot and There is A Criminal Touch To Art (1976) the artist moved into a style based exclusively on performance. His meeting with Marina Abramovi resulted in actions analysing the male/female relationship, which pushed out the physical limits of the body (Relation Works). After they separated in 1988, Ulay returned to photography, addressing the question of marginalised individuals. While he works mainly with photography today, Ulay remains viscerally connected with the question of performance through his constant "provocation" of audiences.
With the artist and Florence Parot, PhD student in the history of performance.
