Riki Kalbe

Riki Kalbe (born September 20, 1941 in Wuppertal, died January 2, 2002 in Berlin) was a filmmaker and photographer. She loved concrete things, discovering metaphorical universes in them, she invented the feminist hacker, anticipating reality, she researched ordinary stories and dedicated herself to hidden memory, always pursuing the question of how memory is possible at all. Between 1976 and 1998 she shot 15 films, some of them in collaboration with Barbara Kasper and others. In 2006 her films were shown at Arsenal cinema on the occasion of an exhibition of her photographs.
