About Her name is MAMU

Painter and performance artist.
Long time ago I absolved the Staatliche Hochschule fuer Bildende Kuenste Hamburg. MAMU derives from the abbreviation for Malende Mutter. After having left his studies in Vienna with a bachelor of economics and film my son Niels is living with his great love Trin Liz in Stockholm. My daughter Mira Xenia has got a stipendium for arthistory and history first at Princeton and now at Harvard University, and at the present time she is in progress to graduate there. At the present time she is living with her husband Paul Schwerda at Edinburgh.

When I was young I went alone to the Ivory Coast in Africa. The musician El Maistro Laba Sosseh, Superstar de Dacar, travelled with me along the African States.
The African spirit inspired my painting style.
I produced a painting installation: In the name of the law. I thougt about tribal judges
doing their ceremonial in the African forest
and about our European institutions in the name of the law and about church ceremonials.
This is all the same. You have to believe in it
or you do not believe in it. Caused by the way of life of my husband the bibliosoph and bookculterer Guenther Rossipaul I have been in court again and again. Several times I had to pay our debts with my paintings.
