Rolf Julius


Rolf Julius (*1939 in Wilhelmshaven, †2011 in Berlin) is one of the co-founders and best-known representatives of sound art and stands in the succession of John Cage. Julius interweaves sounds and everyday noises with his objects. In his works, single elements are arranged in space and accompanied acoustically. The minimalist sound repertoire of the artist here is particularly associated with the Far Eastern aesthetics of reduction. Rolf Julius received various prizes and grants, including the PS1 grant, New York (1983-1984) and the Hannah Höch Prize for Lifetime Achievement (2005). His works were shown at, among others, Museum für moderne Kunst Weserburg, Bremen (2016); Les Bains-Douches, Alençon (2015); Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg (2014); Museum of Modern Art Oxford (2013).
