Born 1968 in Cologne, Julika Rudelius lives and works
in Amsterdam and New York. Part reportage, part mockumentary, part performance, part short film, her video works nearly always involves artificial relationships, communication strategies and encounters with virtual strangers. Her videos often reenact moments in which unconscious gestures or glances reaffirm prejudices and generate sweeping opinions. What initially appear as intimate portraits of cultural hegemony become settings in which identity and social orientation are up for negotiation.
