Florian Wehking was born in Westerstede (Lower Saxony, Germany) in 1982. From 2001 to 2003 he studied political science, philosophy and German philology at the Carl-von-Ossietzky-Universität in Oldenburg. Until 2009 he studied visual communication at the Bauhaus-Universität in Weimar, where he has been working as a freelance filmmaker, photographer and graphic designer since 2010. Since 2015 he is also an artistic associate at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.
Various of his film works have received awards at film festivals and have been broadcast by ORF and MDR. Among other things, he received a grant from the Thüringer Graduiertenförderung des Freistaats Thüringen and artist’s grants from the Kulturstiftung des Freistaats Thüringen.
His works relate to the everyday survival of people on the edge of society. The political and social context is always an essential aspect, aiming to create empathy with the other – without which it proves impossible to live together.
