After seeing Bausch’s choreography “Frühlingsopfer” (victims of spring), Kaufmann started dreaming about photographing Pina Bausch and Tanztheater Wuppertal. She was fascinated by the visual impact of choreography and the rich diversity of movement in dance. “To capture human movement is almost magical. You never know what’s about to happen.”
Ursula Kaufmann accompanied German dance legend and Tanztheater Wuppertal for decades. “Pina Bausch’s most quoted statement is: ‘I am not interested in how people move, but what moves them.’ I follow that concept in my photography,” says Kaufmann.
Her extensive homage to the most important avant-gardist in contemporary dance has been shown in international exhibitions all around the world. And finally: in Ulm!
