Rotraut Pape


Rotraut Pape was born in 1956 in Berlin, studied art at the Hamburg University of Fine Arts. She focused very early on the media of film/video/computers, but was less interested in their technological possibilities – although she mastered these as a virtuoso – than in their artistic potential for developing formulations that raise social, political and ethical questions. Performances and installations play a major role in her work (also in her videos and films), as actual theatrical representation and as interactive experimentation. Parallel to her artistic work, she has made many experimental documentaries for Arte/3Sat/ZDF.
