Stephanie Wuertz is filmmaker and artist living in New York City. Her film practice builds and comments on the avant-garde film tradition. Using film and outmoded equipment like the Bolex and JK optical printer, she’s explored issues surrounding obsolescence, the archive, and re-enactment, moving between abstraction and representation. Her work has screened at Anthology Film Archives, Microscope Gallery, and The New Museum and has travelled to California, South America, Paris and the UK and has been featured in Millennium Film Journal, Jeu de Paume, Art in America, La Furia Umana and LAWeekly.
From 2012–2014, she served as President of the Board of Millennium Film Workshop, a historic non-profit media arts organization in the Lower East Side and has curated film programs at UnionDocs, The New School, the Film-maker’s Coop and Le Petit Versailles.
