Yulia Mahr


Yulia Mahr is a BAFTA award winning filmmaker whose work has been widely exhibited in film festivals, including Tribeca and Edinburgh. Her recent work includes online pieces premiered in Wallpaper and The Nowness, while recent broadcast work includes projects for ARTE.

Her specialism in contemporary art and music films has its origin in her academic research work in visual anthropology, which she has taught at the Freie Universität and Humboldt University in Berlin, and in her ongoing documentary work on the evolving cultural scene of the city (which includes portrait projects on Yohji Yamamoto’s Five Cuts at the MADE Gallery, and on the work of composer Max Richter).

As curator her practice covers the meeting points between anthropology and art. Recent shows include work from the nascent alternative photography scene in Chiapas, Mexico, and work covering the aftermath of the war in Mozambique through sensorial ethnography . Other recent shows include a retrospective of Mari Mahr’s photographic work for the European Month of Photography at the Kunststiftung Poll.

Yulia is Creative Director at Studio Richter Mahr, alongside Max Richter, and is Executive Producer of SLEEP an eight hour overnight music piece chosen by BBC Radio 6 as its Album of the Year.
