Franziska von Stenglin



Franziska von Stenglin (b.1984, Munich, Germany) is an artist and filmmaker based in Berlin. She grew up in the Czech Republic, Senegal, India and Germany. She studied photography in London and fine art at the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Her works link aspects of her own biography with local myths, people and their stories, which she encounters on her travels and artist residencies. She often incorporates the entire exhibition space into her installations. Her first feature length film, The Dust of Modern Life (2021), had its world premiere at FID Marseille and was screened at DOK Leipzig, CPH Dox and the ICA Frames of Representation in London, amongst others.
