ABOUT Julian Rosefeldt

Julian Rosefeldt was born in 1965 in Munich, Germany
He lives and works in Berlin, Germany

Julian Rosefeldt’s work reflects the artist’s fascination with day-to-day reality, and the stereotypes, clichés and mindless repetitions that suffuse popular culture. Since the mid-1990s Rosefeldt has been producing complex film and video installations, as well as photographs, through which we can observe from a cool, detached perspective the formulaic imagery and content that is generated by contemporary media.

The artist has made a name for himself with lavishly produced 16mm and 35mm films. Projected onto several screens to create a panorama-like effect, his films carry the viewer off into a surreal, theatrical world whose inhabitants are caught in the structures and rituals of everyday life. Almost all his works are characterized by their complex interweaving of several dimensions of reality, a device used to expose the production process. Thus, his films are also a homage to the medium of film and a reflection on the construction of fictional narratives, using cinematographic and iconographic means.

Rosefeldt studied architecture in Munich and Barcelona before starting his artistic career with found-footage video installations such as Detonation Deutschland (1996), Asylum (2001-02), Trilogy of Failure (2004–05), The Ship of Fools (2007), American Night (2009), and, more recently, Manifesto (2015). Rosefeldt’s works are in many important museum and private collections all over the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the National Gallery, Berlin; and the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney. Since 2011, he holds a professorship for digital and time-based media at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Munich.
