Hanwen Zhang is an artist and filmmaker currently based in Braunschweig. He holds an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York and was the recipient of the SAH Award for Film and Video 2020. As a current fellow of Braunschweig Projects, he has participated in various residencies and programs including the Oberhausen Seminar in Oberhausen, the Fosun Foundation Art Residency in Shanghai, the BRIClab Video Art Residency in New York, the UnionDocs Summer Documentary Lab in New York, and the VSC Artist-in-Residency in Vermont. His work has been exhibited and screened at venues such as the Power Station of Art in Shanghai, the OCAT Institute in Beijing, BY ART MATTERS in Hangzhou, CACHE Space in Beijing, as well as at film festivals including the Beijing International Short Film Festival and BBC LongShots.
Zhang’s artistic practice revolves around capturing photographs, videos, and films, employing documentary as a narrative and self-reflective device. His work encompasses various mediums such as sound, installations, and writings. Drawing from artistic research and field studies, he often explores mundane objects or activities through the lens of visual studies, contemplating them as still or moving images within a broad range of critical, local, transnational, historical, and ideological contexts. Throughout this process, Zhang reflects on the technological trajectory and physical existence of photography, video, and film, as well as their entanglement with subject matters that span from individual living conditions, personal stories, love, and memory to collective archives, narratives, trauma, and identities.
