Jan Peter Hammer

Jan Peter Hammer is an artist who creates films and performances that connects literature and cinema. He is primarily interested in the narrative structure of a work. His videos, films, and synchronised slideshows allow for a literary reading or a point of view for criticism. He studied painting and sculpture before attending courses at the New School’s Film Theory department and graduating in Fine Arts at the Hunter College. In 2016 he was selected as artistic research fellow at KHiO – Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Norway. His works have been shown in international solo and group exhibitions and screened at several international film festivals.
