Tatsumi Orimoto (born 1946 in Kawasaki) studied at the California Institute of the Arts. In 1971 he moved to New York where he worked as an assistant for Nam June Paik and came into contact with the Fluxus movement. Due to the illness of his mother he returned to Kawasaki in 1977 where he lives and works today. His legendary performance Breadman was shown publicly in numerous countries, among others at the Sydney, São Paulo and Venice Biennials. DNA Berlin was opened with works by Tatsumi Orimoto 10 years ago.
