Rühm is one of the most important figures of visual poetry.
His work comprises elements of drawings, artist?s books, as well as photographic works.
In the 50s and 60s he was one of the founding members of the legendary "Wiener Gruppe" and was already creating intermedia works.
Since 1972 he has been teaching at the Hochschule für bildende Künste in Hamburg.
His photographic work is a visual dialogue between pictures and text in the form of poetic montages.
His use of found imagery (from various magazines and publications) deals with the concept of visual association within the poetic montages.
