Magdalena Maatkare (*1988 in Langenargen, Germany) studied at the Sorbonne Paris, the ENS LYON (École Normale Supérieure) and the UDK Berlin. She has been raised up in several cultures: Germany (Berlin), France (Paris) and West Africa (Dakar, Abidjan). Since 2017 she works and lives in Berlin.

She has been presented in numerous international exhibitions ex. the Goethe Institut Dakar, Galerie Petra Lange Berlin, Goethe Institut Venice, Art3f Salon International Monte Carlo Monaco, Kunsthaus Caserne Friedrichshafen, Van Gogh Art Gallery Madrid etc.

With her very own technique of textile collage with waxprint fabric she creates in each artwork an energetic, powerful explosion of colour. The artist' focus lays on the mutual cultural understanding: as textile is a symbol of culture for her, she creates with innumerable textile particles re-unified assemblages. Her contribution to mutual cultural acceptance through her artwork is realised in an active African- European collaboration: she receives the waxprint-textiles from tailors in West-Africa and shares a part of the art sale in return.
