Jens Kull was born in Basel, Switzerland in 1975. After studies of ethnology and philosophy he left his hometown at the age of 22 to live in Mexico City where he studied photography and developed a particular way of observing urban space and people.
With sequenced photography, video compositing and video installation, Jens Kull plays with new and well-established technologies aiming at disclosing different angles of realities and possibilities, shifted in time and space.
