As part of of the "Filmvorstellungen, präsentiert" work group (1961-1971), in 1981 Timm Ulrichs had the lettering THE END tattooed on his right eyelid in Frankfurt's Samy's Tattoo Studio, an event documented by Foto-Hierner. The lenticular card was published for his retrospective in the Museum Ritter in 2010. "The End" is also the title of a video work which brings together 60 final images from feature films in a seven-minute anthology.
Quotes: 
"I tattooed my eyelid curtains with the words THE END; when they close, my eye cinema is also over." 
"When, in the blink of an eye, the end moment comes, when my eyes are closed for eternal sleep, the tag line will appear on the right lid: the final frame of a life formed and performed for the big screen.”
