Ulrich H. Ahlheim

After several years of studying "Visual Arts" and "History of Art" at the famous "Kunstakademie Düsseldorf" in Germany (those were the days of Joseph Beuys, Gerhard Richter e. a.), Ulrich H. Ahlheim worked since 1976 as a visual artist and as a lecturer for arts and education. Thirty years of experience in collecting Kurdish textiles and more than twenty years of dealing especially with Persian tribal rugs made him one of the leading experts for "Kordi". Since 1992 he is organizing two exhibitions in spring and in autumn each year.
