Daniel Kötter

Daniel Kötter, born 1975, is a director and video artist with a particular interest in multi-channel video installations and alternative concert formats. Daniel takes on the role of director, filmmaker, researcher or composer to relate to the issues of the art system in the public sphere, to what is the network of actors which activate the understanding and role of images, institutions and artistic practice. His structural approach in filmmaking and photography broadens the understanding of documentary and it is a constant investigation of modes of perception through which the public can explore the limitations of genre-specific habits of narration in theatre, cinema and museum. Daniel’s work oscillates deliberately between different media and institutional contexts, combining techniques of the structuralist film with documentary elements and experimental music theatre.

During his residency at Sazmanab, Daniel screened two of his films. After the screening, he talked about the films and his previous works.

The visit of Daniel Kötter to Tehran was a collaboration between Sazmanab and Raf Art Gallery and was made possible through the generous support of Goethe Institut and Embassy of Germany in Tehran.
