Floris Schönfeld

Floris Schönfeld is a visual artist and filmmaker based in San Francisco and Amsterdam, where he mainly works with film and performance. The focus of his work is the relationship between fiction and faith: he constantly tries to find the line between defining his context and being defined by it. In the words of the Scottish artist Charles Avery: “Believing in fiction is not about saying life is but a dream … It means that everything is real: there can be no distinction between mind and matter.” In 2010 Schönfeld completed the multi-disciplinary project ‘u’ in which he reconstructed the first authentic Klingon opera on Earth. He is currently studying for his Master’s degree in Fine Arts at the California College of Art in San Francisco.
