The art of Ulrike Ottinger (*1942) straddles ethnographic observation and mythological narration. Through a dense network of images from other countries and thematically linked objects and wall pieces, "World Images" documents an installation that highlights both similarities and distinctions between cultures.

The catalogue accompanys the exhibition at Kestnergesellschaft in Hannover. The various aspects of her œuvre – film, opera and theatre directing, stage design, photography and ritual objects inspired by her travels – all flow into a large-scale installation extending through several spaces.
