Stefan Krauth, a German artist who creates his very own “reality”.
Stefan Krauth was born in 1978 in Karlsruhe. In 2012, he received a Master of Arts degree from the Hochschule der Bildende Künste Dresden.
The German artist uses a variety of motives, which he usually finds on his travels around the globe. But it’s not his desire to show us ordinary impressions of his trips. Due to various techniques of retouching and reproduction, Stefan Krauth puts together different images in order to create an artwork, which is far away from the given reality. Pictures are deliberately taken out of context to form a completely new scene. In a final step, his reproductions are repeatedly photographed from the screen. In this way, he creates completely new impressions caused by reflections on the screen, incident light, dust, cigarette smoke, etc.
Stefan Krauth’s artworks are an exploration of our viewing habits, diverse clichés, and accidental circumstances which result from the reproduction process. Below you can find a selection of his photographic artworks. For more, please visit Stefan Krauth’s website.
