Helge was born in Woltwiesche, Germany. He formed the performance art group System HM2T (with Marco Teubner) in 1998 and since 2000 has been associated with Black Market International. He has performed in Europe, Asia, Canada, South America, Australia and the USA.
His work deals with collaboration, and if not working with a partner, he aims to include his audience as a collaborator. His performances use the border between the audience and performer as a semi-permeable membrane, where a shared presence uses the same space, time and air.
The idea of sharing pain but simultaneously healing wounds play an important part in the creation of his images. "My main goal is to find a level of real communication between human beings."
