Michael Bielicky was born in Prague in 1954 and emigrated
to the Federal Republic of Germany in 1969. In 1984 he
began studying at the Art Academy in Düsseldorf, where he
became a master-class pupil of Nam June Paik. He graduated from
the Art Academy in 1987 and then worked as an assistant
to Nam June Paik.

In 1991, Bielicky founded the Department for New Media at
the Art Academy in Prague, where he has been a professor
and director of the same department since 1995. In
addition to this, he is an adviser for the European Council
for Culture and Technology. He has been involved in
numerous German and international exhibitions and
projects. To mention but a few: Bielicky's art was displayed in
the Red Salon of the People's Theatre (Volksbühne), Berlin
in 1993 and he was a guest artist at the Center for Art and
Media Technology in Karlsruhe (1999/2000). His video sculpture

>Manorah< is permanently installed at the Jewish Museum Berlin.
