Julia Charlotte Richter (DE)
Julia Charlotte Richter, video artist and filmmaker, will give an insight into her artistic approach. In her videos, she explores the meaning of present in different stages of age and awareness, and depicts how consciousness, behavior, wishes and desires blend together. On the basis of sensitively arranged scenes, metaphorical places of transition are created.
Julia Charlotte Richter (*1982 in Gießen, DE) studied Fine Art (Video) in Kassel (DE), Portsmouth (UK) and Braunschweig (DE). Her video works have been shown internationally in numerous screenings and exhibitions. She received different scholarships and residencies, for example a working grant by the Stiftung Kunstfonds in 2014. In 2017 she received a project grant by the Kunststiftung NRW as well as a travel grant by the Hessische Kulturstiftung.
About the fear and how Art can answer
The artist Sarah Oh-Mock will present a selection of her artistic works and working process, especially into the media art scene. She will also focus on the cooperation aspects’ of her works and on her experience / existence as an artist in Berlin.

She studied in the Fine Arts academies of UDK Berlin (Prof. Vedder, Meisterschüler 2014), Kassel (Prof. Melhus) and Mainz (Prof. Kiessling). Her surrealistic video works, installations, objects, photographys and drawings are dealing with the relations between culture, artificiality of urban spaces, nature and the subconsciousness.
