Judith Stryczek grew up in Hamburg during the glamorous 80s – very early the fresh breezes were blowing around her ears – she swishes through the decade of the “Mullet” and the Rubik’s Cube. The world is big and the atmosphere is stirred up, the “punk” lurks in every townhouse garden. With open eyes and great curiosity, she feels the sweet alertness of imagination in all her observations and a need to give all those impressions and experiences a personal and tangible form.
As a costume designer she loves to play with ideas and experiment with shapes, colors and materials. Through associations, images and research she has found her own personal approach to history, stories and characters and displays in her costumes an essence of an idea-mill and studio-wingding. Through all of this she always sees herself as part of a team and that only life creates the truly magnificent stories and therefore the community and the interchange with people is a substantial stimulus for her creative work.
