jakob ganslmeier

I am a photographer and filmmaker dismantling the visual representation of radical ideologies. In an era marked by the resurgence of extreme ideologies, I am interested in how visual arts can counteract radical political narratives and increase sensibility for social issues with conflicting perspectives.
