Sophia + Robert are Sophia Magdalena Koegl and Robert Dziabel. They met at the Merz Academy Stuttgart, “College of Art, Design and Media”, where they studied graphic design and film.
Their graduation film was a 40-minutes short film about hysteria called Nature Morte. The DVD artwork was nominated for the prestigious German Design Awards.
Since then they even taken a deeper dive into creativity by studying at one of the world’s finest Art Academies the Kunstakademie Duesseldorf. Having spent 4 years under the mentorship of magical realism painter Peter Doig they are now on the lookout for work that challenges their imagination.
On their way they also directed the short “399” which won the Berlin Independent Film Festival 2016 in the category: Best Sci-Fi Short.
Sophia + Robert are based on earth since they don’t believe in borders, geographically or creatively.
