Wolfgang LEHMANN

(1967- )
Nationalité allemande

Wolfgang Lehmann was born in Freiburg/Breisgau, Germany in 1967.
Active in the film club there, Wolfgang Lehmann wrote film critiques and began working for the municipal cinema Freiburg, a post he held till until 2005. As member of the board and executive chairman of the consortium of the municipal cinema Freiburg, he developed and organised several retrospectives and programmes. He focused on presenting works of the film- and video avant-garde from its beginnings until today. For this purpose he organised programmes in collaboration with archives, distributors and collections from various European countries and the USA. Some of these programmes were shown at selected Art Cinemas throughout Germany as well as Switzerland. His main contributions have been to unearth little known or forgotten films, as well as explore areas such as "expanded cinema" and multi media works.
Wolfgang Lehmann has also displayed interest in the notion of live film performance in terms of a type of staged activity. Concluding his work in Freiburg was the organisation of the Festival Film Forum Freiburg: Expanded Cinema & avant-garde in 2004.
His first cinematic efforts were made in 1989. 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).
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.
Since 2007, Wolfgang Lehmann deals again with static images, digital and analogue photography. He makes transformations and transfers of documentary images into abstract works. To accomplish the translation from one reality to another, he mixes the media: a crafted 16mm camera, 16mm film projectors, digital or analog cameras and computers, the picture is a result of a conversion process.
After living for a brief period in Berlin, Wolfgang Lehmann has resided in Gundelfingen / South Germany and Stockholm since 2006.
