ABOUT OSTRARIO

Ostrario is a collective from Germany’s south, Bavaria, consisting of Simon Karlstetter, Leon Kirchlechner, Matthias Lohscheidt and Maximilian Prüfer. As Bavarians tend to be seen as conservative, weird, beer-drinking minds, we do our best to fulfill these prejudices, but we often fail. We work with moving or still visual media, with a main interest in editorial, motion and photography, creating individual, emotional and maybe stable work. But Ostrario is more than that: It’s a whole way of living and thinking, and even a musical genre that could be described as dada-techno.
