Stephan Kurr studied visual arts in Kassel and Nuremberg in the 1980s. Prizes, fellowships and exhibitions – the common artist’s biography – shaped his further professional development, during which specific questions crystallized. Themes like migration, the public space and economy became relevant in the 1990s. His reflections on political topics as well as the conditions of production and the occupational activities of the artist gave the impetus to initiate several artistic exchanges, lately with Turkey, Vietnam and Colombia. Curatorial work as well as writing on art became a major part of his today’s practice. Stephan Kurr has taught at the Art Academy Nuremberg and the Concordia University, Montréal. He is currently working on different larger projects focusing on the artistic participation of school kids and youngsters. He lives in Berlin.
