Christoph Faulhaber Director / Producer


Christoph Faulhaber (1972) studied at the Bauhaus University Weimar, Universidade Tecnica de Lisboa, and Leibniz University Hannover. In 2002 he graduated from the University of Fine Arts in Hamburg with a documentary about the rebuilding process of the World Trade Center in New York City.

His work investigates the boundaries of public space and presents it as a contested territory of conflictual interests, as a place where the private and the political overlap and meet, and finally, as a stage for the renegotiation of the power of the image.

Faulhaber has not only been watched by the German intelligence service but has been targeted in the US by the FBI and divisions of Homeland Security.
