“Photography is communication – with those portrayed and with the viewer of my works. With a camera in my hand I am able to ask anything and to say everything. Photography is a way of experiencing the world and making this world visible.”
Bettina Flitner has occupied “a unique position in German photography scene for 25 years” (Photonews). Together with the testimonies of those portrayed in her pictures, her award-winning photographic works frequently give rise to intense debates.
Speaking in relation to her trilogy My Enemy – My Monument – My Heart (Mein Feind – Mein Herz – Mein Denkmal), Art historian Prof. Klaus Honnef said of the artist: “Since the beginning of the 1990s, she has infiltrated the art world and broken through its boundaries.”
