Jürgen Klauke, born in 1943 in Kliding, is a contemporary German artist, currently living and working in Cologne, who specializes primarily in photography, video, and performance art. Originally, Klauke was educated in graphics at the Cologne School of Art and Crafts (1964-70); however, he soon started to experiment with other media, always subversive and questioning the borders of identity, body, and gender. Immediately recognized for his photographic work from the early-70s, Klauke was featured in "Transformer. Aspects of Travesty" (1974-5), a breakthrough exhibition curated by Jean-Christphe Ammann. Shortly after, the artist immersed himself in performance, staging one of his first works "No possibility – two wounds" together with Ulay (Galerie de Appel in Amsterdam, 1975). Klauke's wide critical acclaim was instantly confirmed by his participation in the Documenta in Kassel (1977, 1987), Biennale of Sydney (1979), and the Venice Biennale (1980). Besides his prolific work, Klauke, through his professorship at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne (1994-2008), has become even more influential to the new generation of artists. Throughout the years, his art has been featured in more than 300 exhibitions and renowned collections of the Museum of Modern Art in Salzburg, Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, Hamburger Kunsthalle, Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, and many others.
