Dieter JUNG

Dieter Jung was born in 1941 in Bad Wildungen, Germany.

During the 1960's he studied theology and art education in Berlin as well as painting and graphic arts at the École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Paris. From 1971 to 1974, he pursued his studies, this time in cinema at the German Academy of Film and Television in Berlin. Since 1965, Dieter Jung's videos and visual installations have been presented in various solo and collective exhibitions in Germany. In Québec, he participated in Les Cent jours d'art contemporain de Montréal in 1986. In 1988, he was awarded the Holography Prize of the Shearwater Foundation of New York. He has been teaching holography at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne since 1990.

Through his in-depth research in holography, Dieter Jung has become a master of the art form and has developed, over the years, works that conjure up light and poetry. Reducing images to play between light and color, he touches the very essence of the medium and dematerializes space. A full network of influences and interest weave complex fascinating links throughout his works. Drawing from the Italian Renaissance, in optic phenomena as well as on contemporary literature and poetry, the artist broadens his stroke to express his concerns about the notions of absence, conscience and disappearance.
