Tabea Blumenschein (1952–2020) made her name acting in films by director Ulrike Ottinger (*1942). Blumenschein’s artistic creativity also found powerful expression in drawing. She made hundreds of portraits in a flat, comic-like style. The Berlinische Galerie has selected about 40 of these works to shed light on a hitherto little-known aspect of Blumenschein’s life. With additional photographs by Ulrike Ottinger, the show celebrates the artistic collaboration and friendship between these two important figures in Berlin art life during the 1970s and 1980s.
