Klaus Kruse is originally from Germany. He came to the UK and studied art at Dartmouth University after being in Holland for a year. Lived in a lorry for a long time. On the plinth he will be bringing performance art onto the plinth because that is what he does in daily life, apart from jobs here and there to support himself financially. His performance on the plinth is self-devised, as is all his work, and based on the basic human needs/conditions like eating, sleeping, and going to the bathroom. He also is a part time lecturer.
