Bettina Semmer, born in Düsseldorf, became known in the eighties with international exhibitions, films and public interventions. Her studies with Polke and Richter (painting), film (Neumann) and an MFA at Goldsmiths’ University in London contributed to her work becoming a complex reflection on her respective medium. Her activities include murals and workshops in the refugee camps in the Western Sahara near Tindouf, Algeria, participatory works and interventions in the city of Potsdam (The Good Life, Pleasure Ground) and exhibitions such as "The 1980s - Figurative Painting in Germany" in the Städel Museum in Frankfurt and Neue Wilde in the Groninger Museum in Holland, with acquisitions by the museums. Semmer studied sociology, German studies and philosophy and worked on war trauma, witches and matriarchy, permaculture and phosphorus recycling.
