Ulrike Ottinger
*1942 in Konstanz; lives in Berlin
Photography has always played a pivotal role in Ulrike Ottinger’s oeuvre, along with drawing and film. Her documentary Prater, which takes an affectionate look at the imaginary world of the amusement park, was recently premièred at the Berlin Biennale. Her powerful, allegorical, and at times sumptuous photographs are created on her extensive travels, as film stills, or as a scenic medium for the staged camerawork she describes as ‘living images’.
