Theresa Büchner develops cinematic, photographic, and text-based works. Making use of visual and verbal narrative tools, she precisely selects motifs from her surroundings to form narrations which evoke the poetic attraction of the everyday. She began her studies at Hochschule für Gestaltung in Offenbach and went on to study at Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam until 2018. Since 2019, Theresa Büchner has been continuing her studies at HAW Hamburg and at the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main. Her short film Demolding a Daughter premiered at Nederlands Film Festival and was nominated for the Steenbergen Photography Stipendium in 2018. Büchner’s video work Droopy Rose (2021) premiered at Kasseler Dokfest, where she was nominated for the Golden Key, the prize awarded for the best documentary work by young filmmakers.
