Wolfgang LEHMANN

(1967- )
Nationality: german

Born in Freiburg/Breisgau, Germany in 1967.
Since 1994 Wolfgang Lehmann has realised and produced his own films, many of which were invited for showings at festivals and museums in Europe, Japan, Korea, India, Bangladesh, Israel, Australia, Canada, USA and South America. Retrospectives were shown in Berlin, Frankfurt/Main and Cagliari (Sardinia).

Since the beginning of his artistic activity, he has not only been fascinated by film and image but music as well. Since his first film with music Fontaine de Vaucluse (2001, together with Florian Krautkrämer / Music by Thomas Gerwin), Wolfgang Lehmann has been searching for a way to combine and connect picture and sound equivalent without using the traditional - and in his eyes dissatisfying - method of synchronisation. The ECLAT Festival commission, Meer (Sea), conceived with Telemach Wiesinger as well as with composer Misato Mochizuki, was a further development toward the connection of image and sound.
In his films Wolfgang Lehmann makes use mostly of documentary material; these include pictures of landscapes and themes from the urban space and from cities. His works can be characterised by an exact and often rhythmic-like montage, as well as extremely short takes that result in overlapping images. After living for a brief period in Berlin, Wolfgang Lehmann has resided in Stockholm with his wife and his son since 2006.
