Moritz Stumm

(* 1981 in Marburg, DE, lives and works in Berlin)

Moritz Stumm is a German artist and label operator. His artistic activities range from video works, installations, objects, ink drawings to audio-visual performances, the latter also in long-term collaboration with artists such as Martin Eder, Nik Nowak and the music producer Henk Heuer.

Power and violence as well as their iconographies and rituals are often subjects of his oeuvre. In his work he combines found footage, staged material and digital animation and interweaves them into narratives with a striking aesthetic.

Together with Cyrill Lachauer he founded the label „Flippig the Coin Records“ in 2011 and since then has been its co-operator publishing musical-auditory work of visual artists. He also works as a musician and music video director.

From 2005 to 2011 Moritz Stumm studied Fine Arts at the University of the Arts in Berlin in the class of prof. Lothar Baumgarten and Michaela Meise. In 2011, Moritz Stumm completed his studies with the title „Meisterschüler“. His work has already been shown nationally and internationally among others in
Museum Marta Herford, CTM Berlin, Sophiensaele, Volksbühne, the kitchen (New York), Muszeul National de Arta al Romaniel (Bucharest), Art Basel Miami, HMKV (Dortmund).
