In an extensive video installation Hetzel shares the visual archive that sourced and inspired the process while creating the works. Each day a different folder will be opened and made accessible to the audience.


Julian Hetzel studied visual communication at the Bauhaus University Weimar, then relocated to Amsterdam to continue his education on the master’s course of the AHK DasArts. During these studies, he stood out with hotly debated performances such as PrENTER (2008), which was shown at the ARS Electronica festival 2008 in Linz, and The Benefactor (2011). In 2016 he set up Ism & Heit as a structure for the development of his artistic work, from a base in Utrecht. For Frascati Producties, he created an adaptation of his graduation show I’m Not Here, Says The Void and in 2017 The Automated Sniper. Hetzel is now also a frequently seen guest at international festivals. From 2018, he has been an associated artist with the CAMPO arts centre in Ghent. Julian Hetzel is also the founder and drummer of the band Pentatones.
