Julian Hetzel is born in the Black Forest. He lives and works in Amsterdam and Leipzig.
He studied visual arts at Bauhaus University Weimar with a focus on audio-visual and time-based formats. He is founding member of the electro-pop band »Pentatones«. He realizes works in the field of performance and visual arts, which often have a political dimension and a documentary approach. Modes of perception and phenomenas of daily life are of central interest for his examinations. He attempts and develops forms and formats which are inherent to the subject – mostly along the trinity of Music, Media and Theater. He currently holds a residency for artistic research in new forms of performing arts & theatre at DasArts in Amsterdam.
