Till F.E. Haupt (tillfeh)

Till F. E. Haupt, born in 1970, lives and works in Hamburg. He studied graphic design, illustration and art in Darmstadt and Hamburg. From that time on he was occupied with the concept of usable artworks called "Handlungskunst" from the 1960's and 70's. Based on those ideas he developed his personal idea of Real Life Art, which he named subsoziale performances. All of which are a variety of conceptual – sometimes interactive – projects dealing with topics such as alternative lifestyles, survival, the art of living and the creative solvation of everyday problems: i.e. persons marketing, Rolemodelcontracts for relationships, heartache-insurance and real life projects. He had solo exhibitions in Berlin, Hamburg, Mannheim, Kiel (2002-2006) und groupexhibtions in Hamburg, Leipzig, Bremen, Bolzano und Brnó (2001-2007). One major topic is the photographic diary „Days In A Life“ for which he takes to pictures a day since 1995 (to be continued). One picture is a selfportrait and the other a 24-hour exposure... www.tillhaupt.de
