Brigitte Waldach, born in Berlin in 1966, first studied German language and literature and then fine arts at the Berlin University of the Arts with Georg Baselitz, whose master student she became. Waldachs works are in numerous public collections such as the Albertina in Vienna, the Museum Kunstpalast in Düsseldorf, the Aros Art Museum in Arhus, the Stavanger Art Museum, the Kupferstichkabinett Berlin, the Berlinische Galerie, the Altana Kulturstiftung, Bad Homburg, and in many national and international private collections. Brigitte Waldach became known for her large-scale drawings and multimedia installations on themes such as violence and pathos, literature and music.
