Robin Stretz | Visual Artist

Robin Stretz
Robin Stretz

Robin Stretz, born 1996 in Pirmasens, lives and works in Frankfurt am Main.

Robin Stretz studied fine arts at the Kunsthochschule Mainz and at the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main.  

Stretz works mainly with films and installations. His work negotiates films as objects and their potential to document, collage, and rearrange things without claiming to be truthful or universal in order to find poetic connections and develop a life of their own.

Most of his works have their starting point on the edge of film, art or (popular) culture; smaller, seemingly unimportant stories and rumors.

Robin Stretz is Villa Aurora Fellow of the German Academic Scholarship Foundation.
