The performance and media artist Kilian Kretschmer (*1983, Northeim) studied at the Karlsruhe University of Art and Design from 2005 to 2011. Characteristic of his work is the sometimes playful engagement with recording and transmission media, from which the questioning of presumed truths emerges. How does the experience change through reproduction or duplication? Before receiving the Karlsruhe Cultural Scholarship in 2013, he was a fellow of the German National Academic Foundation. He lives and works in Karlsruhe.
