Ute Döring’s (born in 1958 in Dresden) artistic progress proceeds parallel to German History. Independently chosen subjects are always composed as conceptional, compact photographic series, almost bordering Surrealism.
Longterm residences in cosmopolitan cities such as New York City, Istanbul, Seoul etc. focus her themes on mapping city-scapes. The combination and layering of images and scenes of her own biographie constitue a continuing topos. Gaps, interferrences and blurring relationship cause the dissapearance of seeming safe knowledge. Everything is connected to each other, such as dots from the past and the present or East and West.
Ute Döring lives and works in Germany.
