Ursula Neugebauer studied visual arts at the Academy of Fine Arts Münster, Germany, where she was appointed by Timm Ulrichs as protégée and literature master student. She has taught briefly as a school teacher and also worked as an art therapist at the Universitätsklinikum Münster, Germany. Between 1999 and 2002, she was a lecturer at the Department of Architecture at the Technical University, Berlin and since 2003 she has held the title of Professor, Institute of Art at UdK Berlin, Germany.
She works as an artist at the interface between installation, object, space, and media. Her works stand in the tradition that metamorphoses everyday life and everyday objects, and is as analytical as it is precise. By doing so, she allows the viewer not only to perceive the world and reality with heightened senses, but also to experience the consolations of art in the face of what is often unspeakable with respect to existence—a function of the aesthetic to which Nietzsche and Adorno made reference.
