Veit Stratmann

Veit Stratmann's work essentially rests upon questioning: can an artistic gesture be based on the notions of choice, of decision-making, of the posture of those who encounter the artwork  ? If political action originates in the act of making a choice, can an encounter with art generate a permanent oscillation between a political and an artistic gesture? 

Veit Stratmann's personal history is also at the root of his work and it has undoubtedly conditioned the social issues that underline his line of questioning. He moved to France in 1981. This displacement of his personal “territory” and focal point from a general sense of “belonging” (in Germany) to an acute awareness of “not belonging” (in France) reoriented his perception of space, territory, separation and belonging. He began to explore the possibilities of influencing his space without actually modifying it. Becoming aware of the limits of his space brought about questioning: how can the limits be made permeable? How can the interstices be used? How can these territories be adjusted, modified, transformed?

The range of Veit Stratmann's artistic preoccupations is anchored in this socio-cultural and spatial questioning. Yet his line of questioning enters the sphere of “art” only when there is exchange with others – as many others as possible. This naturally pulls his artistic action towards the «  polis  » – public space (not the political space but the space of politics). This is where decision and choice-making, negotiation, stance-taking, limitations and borders take form and make sense.

Veit Stratmann has studied at the Staaliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste, Düsseldorf and the Haute Ecole des Arts du Rhin, Strasbourg. He also studied Art History and Political Sciences at the Albert Ludwigs Universität, Freiburg, Germany. He was a fellow of the Institut des Hautes Etudes en Arts Plastiques, directed by Pontus Hulten.  He currently teaches at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Lyon, France.

Veit Stratmann has shown widely and internationaly.

making art only about the experience of particular walks.

term, 'Walking Artist’. Since the early seventies, the artist has completed approximately

2,500 full days of walking.

Escreveu também “Ester” para o programa de teatro juvenil Panos, da Culturgest. O seu trabalho ronda a fronteira entre o espaço privado e o espaço público, os temas da memória, da fragilidade, da manipulação e da transparência. Nos últimos 16 anos, trabalhou em peças de João Fiadeiro (estreou-se com “O que eu sou não fui sozinho”, em 2000), Miguel Pereira, Ana Borralho-João Galante, Farid Fairuz/Mihai Mihalcea, Manuel Pelmus, Brynjar Bandlien, Mihaela Dancs, Madalina Dan, Edi Gabia e, mais recentemente, as revelações Sofia Dinger, Urândia Aragão e Elmano Sancho.
