Marc Aschenbrenner and Knut Klaßen became friends during their collaboration with the “early” John Bock (1998-2004). Since this time they have working together in diverse projects: Knut was DoP for Marc, Marc was editor for Knut’s films. Together with Martin G. Schmid Knut Klaßen initiated schwarzwaldinstitut in 2005 and from 2007–2009 he was manager of Anselm Reyle studio. Since 2005 Knut has been working together with Monika Gintersdorfer in Gintersdorfer/Klaßen a theatre group which has been developing projects that place the performers’ life strategies and forms of expression at their core. The German- Ivorian team works with international guests and shows its works nationally and internationally. And Marc is a permanent part of it.
