Artists with works at this studio


David Krippendorff (b. 1967, Berlin) is a German artist, video- and experimental film maker. He grew up in Rome (Italy) and studied art at the University of Fine Arts in Berlin (Germany), where he graduated with a master degree in 1997. His video work as well as his paintings and drawings are based on Hollywood movies, which he employs to explore hidden ideologies and utopia, and to question ideas of identity and belonging. For this reason he is particularly interested in Hollywood classics, which, as part of our collective consciousness, have become cultural references. His works, films and videos have been shown internationally, a.o. at New Museum (New York), ICA (London), Hamburger Kunsthalle (Hamburg) and Museum on the Seam (Jerusalem). David Krippendorff has participated in Biennials in Prague, Poznan and Tel Aviv. He lives and works in Berlin.


Yuki Jungesblut (b. 1974, Hamburg, Germany) studied natural sciences and social psychology at the University of Cambridge and the London School of Economics and visual communication at the Kunsthochschule Kassel specialising in filmmaking and new media. Her work is research driven and dedicated to the exploration, discovery and mediation of thought spaces, reflection loops and underdetermined states. Always treading the boundaries between fiction, reality and imagination, she likes to use photography as a way of note taking and simultaneously generating evidence. She presents her work as installations, books, films and texts at film festivals and in exhibition spaces such as Kunsthalle Fridericianum Kassel, ARCUS project, Moriya, Halle am Wasser, Berlin. She has received support through Stiftung Kunstfonds, KWW Stipendium Stiftung Künstlerdorf Schöppingen and Goldrausch Künstlerinnenproject art IT, amongst others and has worked as a visiting lecturer at Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee 2008/2009 and at Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig, 2011-13.

Sharon Paz (b. 1969, Ramat Gan, Israel) received a MFA from Hunter College, New York, living in Berlin since 2003. Paz develops projects using mainly the medium of video and performance, working in between textual and visual images. Her works tell visual, nonlinear fragmented stories. Paz exhibited in Weserburg Museum für moderne Kunst, Bremen, Germany, Smack Mellon in NYC, the Herzlyia Museum of Art and Petach-Tikva museum of Art in Israel. Her projects were supported by the Hauptstadt Kulturfonds in Berlin, Fund for Video, CCA Tel-Aviv, Goethe Institut, Rabinovich Foundation and the Lottery Art Council in Israel. Her video works are part of the collection of Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Video-Forum Collection, Berlin and The Israel Museum, Jerusalem and have been screened at Thomas Erben Gallery, Art in General, Anthology Film Archives in New York City, and Transmediale 11, Berlin.
