Michael Müller (b. 1970, Ingelheim am Rhein, Germany) lives and works in Berlin. He studied sculpture with Magdalena Jetelová at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, Germany. Since 2015 he has been professor at Berlin University of the Arts.

His practice engages with the pictorialization of complex thought processes, whose transformation by various methods constitutes a slow and patient appropriation. Although primarily known for his drawings and paintings, Müller's approach merges media such as sculpture, installation and performative art with curatorial practice itself. Michael Müller was recently nominated for the Böttcherstraße Prize of the Kunsthalle Bremen, one of the most important prizes for contemporary art in Germany. Michael Müller has participated in several significant exhibitions around the world. Selected solo exhibitions include: Vor und hinter dem Glas, Brandenburgischer Kunstverein, Potsdam (2017/18); Everything we do is music, Drawing Room, London (2017/18); For All Those Who Trust in Form and Not in Content, Jhaveri Contemporary, Mumbai, India (2017); Achtzehn Ausstellungen, Galerie Thomas Schulte, Berlin (2013-2017); SKITS – 13 Exhibitions in 9 Rooms, Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Germany (2016/17); Who's Speaking?/ Wer spricht?, KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, Germany (2015/16); Musikstücke und Farben, Jhaveri Contemporary, Mumbai India (2011).
