Bettina Cohnen uses the method of the self-portrait as an artistic strategy to investigate the narrative potential of our everyday life. She considers her body and appearance as material, constantly reinventing herself for her photographic and cinematic work.
The gallery Hier und Jetzt shows a part of Bettina Cohnen photo series »Dedicated to«: images combined with texts that can be read as a diary as well as a comment about art. The work »Diamonds« comes along more dramatically: meant as an hommage to Marilyn Monroe Bettina Cohnen created a series of performative images, in which the stereotype of a woman as seductress leads her to an existential struggle for survival.
