The performance and media artist Kilian Kretschmer (*1983, Northeim) grew up in Kassel and studied at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Karlsruhe from 2005 to 2011. Characteristic of his work is the sometimes playful exploration of recording and transmission media, from which emerges the questioning of supposed truths. The interface between virtuality and reality plays an important role in all of his works. To what extent does recording differ from experience? Documentation from staging? How does the experience change, through reproduction or duplication? Prior to the Karlsruher Kulturstipendium [Karlsruhe Cultural Fellowship] 2013, he was a fellow of the German Academic Scholarship Foundation. He lives and works in Karlsruhe, Baden-Württemberg.
