Ulay was here


A wonderful and huge retrospective and first international posthumous exhibition of Ulay (1943-2020). Ulay was one of the pioneers of Polaroid photography and performance and body art: experimental, uncompromising, and committed to social issues. The artists’s full name was Frank Uwe Laysiepen (1943–2020), known as Ulay and he passed away in 2020. Comprising approximately 200 works, some never before exhibited, ULAY WAS HERE examines entire oeuvre by pivoting around four key themes that amplify the contemporary relevance of his work. The exhibition includes many never before seen works.
