Ulrike Ottinger (* 1942 in Constance, lives in Berlin) has made film history since the 1970s with her films, which have been shown at the most important international festivals and have won numerous prizes. To date, however, her work goes far beyond that of a filmmaker: she is an artist, photographer, author, film and theater director. Her artistic work attracted attention at the most important international art exhibitions such as the Biennale di Venezia (1980), documenta (2002) and the Berlin Biennale (2004). Most recently she had solo exhibitions in the House of World Cultures in Berlin (2011) and in the Goetz Collection in Munich (2012).
The catalog accompanies the exhibition »Weltbilder« by the kestnergesellschaft in Hanover and for the first time comprehensively documents Ulrike Ottinger's exhibitions from the 1960s to the present day.
