Tabea Blumenschein – Ulrike Ottinger
Exhibition Opening: 14 July, 2022, 7pm
"The artist Tabea Blumenschein (1952–2020) is best known to the public for the roles she played in films by Ulrike Ottinger (*1942), who enjoys an international reputation as a cinema director. In the latter half of her life, Blumenschein’s artistic creativity found a second powerful form of expression in drawing. She
made hundreds of fictional and stylised portraits in her two-dimensional, comic-like style. Her figures tend to be androgynous, with costumes and attributes such as colourful tattoos that root them in queerness and subculture. "
