Quintessenz is an artist duo that dwells on materials, space and the transitions in between.
They have their studios in Berlin and Hannover. Having started of as a team in 2008. Both of them have their roots in the graffiti scene, and worked together on projects during their time as students at the University of applied arts and sciences in Hildesheim.The emphasis is on film, installation, painting and conceptual art. Always thinking “processual”, handmade is a strong priority for them. In their work they combine the analogue and the digital, and that’s apparent in their workshop and in the many objects and installation they built.

Currently they are working as lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Hildesheim.
