Tobias Yves Zintel (b.1975 in Passau/Germany) lives and works in Berlin and Cologne. In his artistic practice Tobias Yves Zintel draws on different genres as film, theater, performance, installation and music. Through conscious border crossings he re-arranges and re-mixes selected parts from these fields and creates narrative documentaries between fact and fiction. He takes his sources just as from art and film history, philosophy and natural science as from everyday culture and pop music. In his films, he focusses on existential questions about human identity – its rituals and belief systems and how these are influencing the experience of reality. Besides language, music and the image technique of music videos play a central role within his film works.
