Leon Billerbeck


Born in Hamburg, Germany in 1995, young artist Leon Billerbeck first discovered photography as an artistic medium in 2015, while studying Media Arts at the Bauhaus- University in Weimar. Since then, he is ambitiously developing his art and himself, traveling around the world, photographing, filming, writing and participating in the Artist Residency of Antoine D'Agata in Arles in 2017. Billerbeck was, later that year, one of 4 elected students of the "Carte Blanche Étudiants" by Paris Photo and Picto. The following year, he was studying in Porto, Portugal, where worked on a sound- installation DROWN within his Media Art studies at the "Escola das Artes da Universidade Católica Portuguesa", to further discover the fusion of sound and visual art and which was later exhibited at the media-art festival "Semibreve" in Braga, Portugal. Since September 2018 he studied in the class of Prof. Björn Dahlem at the Bauhaus-University, where he intensified his work on mixed-media and installation-art, expanding his often lens-based gestures to a diverse audio-visual expression. In October 2019, he finished his BFA in Media Arts at the Bauhaus-University in Weimar, Germany, under supervision of Prof. Ursula Damm and Prof. Björn Dahlem.
