AA Bronson was born in 1946 as Michael Wayne Tims in Vancouver, Canada. He lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
In 1969 AA Bronson formed the artists’ group General Idea with Felix Partz and Jorge Zontal. Since his partners died in 1994, AA Bronson has worked and exhibited as a solo artist, often collaborating with younger generations, most recently in his performance series Invocation of the Queer Spirits. His work - as an artist, healer, curator, and educator - is dominated by the practice of collaboration and consensus. Editions and artist books are a key part of his practice.
