Micha Ullman is one of the most important Israeli sculptors of his generation. His family fled a Thuringian village in 1933 to Palestine, where he was born in Tel Aviv in 1939. His work has been shown in public places in Germany since the 1970s. Best-known is his memorial to the book burning at Bebelplatz.

The Jewish Museum Berlin acquired an important work by Micha Ullman last year: The installation "Under" is now on show with sketches by the artist acquired at an earlier date and a video on the artist at the Eric F. Ross Gallery. Here Micha Ullman picks up on a thread that runs through many of his works, namely that the object itself is absent, invisible, and inaccessible. He thus enters into congenial dialog with the architecture of Daniel Libeskind and his concept of voids.
