Ulrike Müller’s work complicates conventional expectations. Her paintings and works on paper destabilize highly prized concepts such as originality, autonomy, and authorship. Müller shifts her formal vocabulary between material and affective states and makes use of a variety of materials and techniques. Alongside small-scale paintings in baked enamel, she also produces expansive wall paintings, publications, prints, and textiles.
Ulrike Müller was a co-editor of the queer feminist journal LTTR (2005-2008) and organized Herstory Inventory. 100 Feminist Drawings by 100 Artists (2009-2012). Recent solo exhibitions include Mumok (Vienna, 2015) and Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfahlen (Düsseldorf, 2018). At Mumok, Müller, with Manuela Ammer, also co-curated the collection exhibition Always, Always, Others. Non-Classical Forays into Modernism (2015). Her work was included in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, in the 57th Carnegie International (2018), and in the 58th international art exhibition of the Biennale di Venezia (2019).
