Fritz Polzer was born in Heidelberg in 1983. After graduating from high school, he studied politics in Great Britain and France before working in fashion publishing in Paris and London. Fritz's entry into the medium of the moving image was made through cinema, notably documentary film. He studied at the National Film School with Kim Longinotto with an emphasis on "observational filmmaking". In addition to his documentary-ethnographic approach, Fritz uses many other mediums in his artistic work. He lives between London and Berlin and is currently attending the Eli Cortiñas / Candice Breitz class at the Braunschweig University of Art.
