Join Hunterian Contemporary Art Curator, Dr Dominic Paterson, as we encounter the work of renowned filmmaker and artist Ulrike Ottinger. Among her major works are the ‘Berlin Trilogy’ of films (1979-1984), the part documentary-part fantasy film Johanna d’Arc of Mongolia (1989), and 2007 film Prater. Most recently, Ottinger’s travels to the Bering Strait, following in the footsteps of 18th and 19th century explorers, produced the 12-hour film Chamisso’s Shadow (2015), awarded ‘Best Documentary’ by the German Film Critics Association. In 2011 she was awarded the Hannah-Höch-Prize for her creative work. This is the first solo exhibition of Ulrike Ottinger’s films and photographs to take place in a UK art gallery and is part of Glasgow International 2018.
