Hello, my name is Kai Kniepkamp. „The familiar, just because it is familiar, is not understood“ sais good ol’ Hegel and I would call it the personal credo of my creative work. So let’s f*** around with the material and see what else is there. Because there is always this tiny little bit more to discover and for the audience to remember.
SHOW VITA

Kai starts his career 1989 with RTL Television in Cologne. He works on game- and entertainmentshows, such as the famous „Tutti Frutti“, the „Gong Show“ or the „Mini Playpack Show“ - a great insight into german pop-culture of the early 90s! In 1994 Kai moves to Berlin, a city in the rebuilding phase of the post-turnaround time. He works as an editor for MTV/Premiere „Real World“ / „Das wahre Leben“ and the comedyshow „Saturday Night“. His focus then turns to music video, starting with the upcoming boom of german Hip Hop acts; several hundred clips are shown on ‚high rotation’ at VIVA Television or MTV and get awarded (i.e. Echo „Musicvideo of the year“). With the birth of his daughter in 2001 Kai shifts down a couple gears. Some selected projects run over his desk, among them more and more commercials. In 2006 Kai launches the art blog „Teutonika“, soon awarded with the Lead Award ‚weblog of the year‘ in 2007, but still keeping up his work as an editor for commercials. In 2012 Kai finds his passion in photography with his first series „AbseitsBerlin“. In 2014 and 2015 he takes credit as an editor and script for two documentaries „Eine ganz normale WG“ (ZDF) and „Krieger Vater König“ (release cinema mid 2016).
