About the artist:
Martin Zepter (*1976 in
Ansbach/Germany) is a freelance director, performer and producer
independent art projects. He studied english, german and
in Würzburg, directing at Rose Bruford College in Sidcup and
theatre, arts and media in Hildesheim. Since 2005 he
mainly works as developer for projects in between arts,
politics and society mixing art forms like performance art,
art, installation, video and theatre. Best known are the "X
pe d/t itions"
(2012-2014), a Dresden based, federal funded, artistic research
project with his artist collective theatrale subversion.
My most important performance material is “Der Panda” a stuffed animal toy with an extraordinary personal history and a rich stock of methods to make people think, come together or communicate. But since 2016 I also work without him on meditative site specific performances on the border to street and land art.
