Toni Karat is an award-winning lesbian non-binary photographer and filmmaker who studied fine arts at the Kunstakademie Duesseldorf and Hochschule der Kuenste Berlin.
Their creative work has been expanding in many fields: from being a founding member of two punk/trashbands in the early 1990s to playing Deep House and Minimal music as a DJ in many well-known german and international clubs such as Panorama Bar (Ostgut), Pfefferbank, Irrenhouse, S036, SchwuZ and many more.
From 2014 they also started to produce their own music and they have been working also as a remixer, live performer and composer of scores - with releases on several labels such as Berlin based Reveller Records, TWIRL! Records (Chicago), Yes Yes Records, Minina Music, Fett Recordings, 7MNS Music, Metapop.
Remixes among others for Gudrun Gut and Jean-Michel Jarre for the „Zoolook Revisited” Album.
In 2017, they founded “melting point images – Film- und Fotomanufaktur”, with a focus on queer-feminist artporn films and documentaries.
The private is politcal!
Toni Karat's films are characterised by the unique display of queer intimacy where camerawork and the thoroughly composed experimental music go hand in hand. They strive for an artistic and also hot and explicit visualisation of queer sexuality and eroticism.
Their films Driven, The Mirror, FagDyke Cruising and Endzeit Berlin have screened at many international festivals, like in New York, London, Berlin, Paris, San Francisco, Brussels, Los Angeles, Athens, Glasgow, Vienna, Seattle, Perth, Brighton, Thessaloniki, Osaka, Santiago and Bangalore.
