Wolfgang Lehmann was born on June 12, 1967, in Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany, and lived and worked in Sweden since 2006.
Master of Arts, Stockholm University – main field of study: History of Ideas – supplemented with studies of theoretical philosophy, intersectionality and art history/visual studies.
He works as an artist in the field of the poetic non-narrative film and video art.
His first cinematic efforts were made in 1989. Since 1994 Wolfgang Lehmann has realized and produced his own films and installations, many of which were invited for showings at festivals and museums in many countries worldwide.
In his works, he makes transformations and transfers of documentary staged pictures or found footage images into more or less abstract works. To accomplish the translation from one reality to another, he mixes the media: analog 16 mm film with digital material. The final result image is a result of overlays of material that has been repeatedly filmed and re-copied.
