Ulrike Ottinger | World Images
Ulrike Ottinger (*1942 in Constance, lives in Berlin) belongs to those pioneers of art cinema who recognised the possibilities of film as a continuation of their work early on. Her output goes far beyond that of a film-maker, however: she is an artist, photographer, author and director. She has been making film history since the 1970s, and her works have been shown at the most important international festivals and have won numerous prizes. Her artistic work caused a sensation at the Biennale di Venezia (1980), documenta 11 (2002) and the 3rd Berlin Biennale (2004).
The catalog accompanys the exhibition at kestnergesellschaft in Hannover. The various aspects of her œuvre – film, opera and theatre directing, stage design, photography and ritual objects inspired by her travels – all flow into a large-scale installation extending through several spaces.
For the first time the catalogue comprehensivly documents Ulrike Ottinger's exhibitions from the 1960s up to the present.
