Julian Rosefeldt, artist and filmmaker, was born in Munich, German, in 1965. He studied architecture in Munich and Barcelona. After receiving his diploma in 1994, he began working in collaboration with fellow Munich graduate Piero Steinle.
Rosefeldt’s work consists primarily of elaborate, visually opulent film and video installations. In most cases, these installations are shown as panoramic multi-channel projections. They range in style from documentary to theatrical narrative. Rosefeldt primarily uses 16-mm and 35-mm film and has often worked in close cooperation with the cinematographer Christoph Krauss.
Rosefeldt’s works are represented, among others, in the following permanent collections: Museum of Modern Art New York, Saatchi Gallery London, Goetz Collection, Munich, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Burger Collection Hong Kong, Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation Miami, Museo de Arte Contemporaneo de Castilla y Leon, Sammlung Hoffmann Berlin, Thyssen-Bornemisza Art Contemporary Wien, CAC Malaga, Ellipse Foundation – Contemporary Art Collection, Cascais, Maison Européenne de la Photographie, Paris, Museum Franz Gertsch, Burg.
