Johann Lurf

Johann Lurf is an artist and filmmaker, using the moving image to analyse and restructure space and film. His practice involves observational and documentary filmmaking especially in the field of structural film, as well as an approach to found footage which is strongly oriented on filmic language itself.
Born in 1982 in Vienna Johann Lurf has studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and had an Erasmus term at the Slade School of Art in London in 2008. He graduated from Harun Farocki’s film class in 2009. He received the State Grant of Austria for Video and Media Art and participated in the Artist-in-Residence Programs at the MAK Center for Arts and Architecture in Los Angeles 2011, the SAIC in Chicago 2015 and in Tokyo and Rotterdam 2016 as well as in Israel in 2019. In the same year he received the Berlin Scholarship of the Akademie of Arts Berlin. His work has been recognised with awards and is shown in numerous exhibitions, cinematheques and festivals.
