Born 1984 in Munich, Germany. Lives and works in Leipzig, Germany.


With a background in Theology and Film Studies, Thomas Taube´s video works often operate to deconstruct the elements of film and cinema, from its traditional linear narrative structure to the creation—and subsequent deconstruction—of characters. A former student of Candice Breitz and Clemens Von Wedemeyer, the German artist was a recipient of the International Studio and Curatorial Program New York (ISCP), fellowship and the Marion Ermer Prize, and has participated in the Les Rencontres Internationales Film Festival, and various commercial and museum exhibitions throughout Europe. Thomas Taube is represented by R E I T E R, Galleries, Leipzig, Berlin and London.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
