Claus Böhmler (*1939 in Heilbronn, †2017 in Hamburg) created an exuberant body of work in over 50 years of artistic activity. Böhmler worked across different media, especially with drawings, which he often animated as videos. He also worked with language, electronic media, and installations. Böhmler’s work exuded a sense of experimentation and humor and can be considered part of the Fluxus movement. From 1974 to 2005, Böhmler was a professor of fine arts at HFBK University of Fine Arts Hamburg.
