Jenss, Holger

Artistic Associate | Photography and Coordination Graduate School Moving Image

Holger Jenss works with the media of photography, film, and sound. The focal points of his research and work lie in examining normative visual worlds, as well as the question of how subcultural and mainstream contexts are constructed through visual codes and their transmission, and on postcolonial perspectives with regard to photography and popular culture. He has shown his works in exhibitions and film screenings. In 2016 he was one of the prizewinners in the competition gute aussichten - junge deutsche fotografie. He recently received the project grant gute aussichten GRANT II.
