Ulrichs, Timm
Interferenzen. [Embedded newspaper art].
Hannover: Hannoversche Studentenzeitung, circa 1962.


#16738. Extract from student newspaper, surviving as loose sheet (32 cm.). Printed to recto, with unrelated article regarding British student housing to verso. Featuring manuscript annotation, almost certainly in Ulrichs’ hand. Sunning to edges, but well-preserved / stable.



After graduating high school in Bremen, Timm Ulrichs moved to Hannover to study architecture in 1959. As he began to develop his celebrated practice of “total art,” he made a number of contributions of concrete and visual poetry to the local student newspaper (Hannoversche Studentenzeitung).

Present here: one such embedded artwork, which functions as a find of manifesto for a series of works that Ulrichs would pursue throughout the 1960s under the title Interferenzen. (A manuscript annotation to this specimen supplies the dates 1960-62 following the title).

Provenance: from Hannover's Galerie h, with whom Ulrichs collaborated in the 1960s. For another of these embedded newspaper artworks, see the poem Fragment.
