Uli Aigner was born in Austria in 1965. Following her pottery studies graduating with a journeyman's certificate, she studied product design with Matteo Thun at the University for Applied Arts in Vienna, rewarded with a diploma for her efforts (1990). She then studied digital image design with Prof. Thomas Hägele at the Film Academy Baden-Württemberg. Since the 90s her work has incorporated videos, performances, space installations, large format crayon drawings and porcelain objects, which are exhibited in renowned international museums, institutions and galleries. Her guest professorship at the Academy of Fine Arts Munich (2001-2003) constituted a new focus in her work. As a result she took the reins at the Städtische Kunsthalle Munich / Lothringer 13 from 2006 until 2010. Uli Aigner has lived with her family in Berlin since 2011, where she concentrates on her own artistic production.
