Julian Rosefeldt


The Berlin-based artist Julian Rosefeldt (Munich, 1965) is internationally renowned for his visually opulent and meticulously choreographed moving image artworks, mostly presented as complex multi-screen installations. Inspired by the histories of film, art, and popular culture, Rosefeldt uses familiar cinematic tropes to carry viewers into surreal, theatrical realms. Humour and satire seduce audiences into familiar worlds made strange. Rosefeldt has held a professorship of Digital and Time-based Media at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich since 2011. His works are shown internationally at museums and film festivals.
