Franziska von Stenglin was born in Munich and grew up in the Czech Republic, Senegal, India and Germany. She studied photography in London and art at the Städelschule in Frankfurt/Main. As an artist, she often links aspects of her own biography with local myths and stories in her projects. Her installations are often based on metaphorical photographs and filmic works. In doing so, she incorporates the entire exhibition space and creates narratives of everyday places, people and their stories that she encounters on her travels and artist residencies. In 2016, she made her first short film I'm A Stranger Here Myself. The Dust Of Modern Life is her first feature length film. She currently lives and works in Berlin.
