About me

I am Rebecca Rütten and I was born in Cologne, Germany on the 20th of June in 1991. I started to focus full-time on Art and Design in 2011, when I began my BA in Communication Design at the University of Applied Sciences in Hamburg. During my exchange Semester in 2013 at the the California State University Long Beach, I became enamored with the eroticism, presentation and charisma of paintings from the Renaissance Period. Here, I got the inspiration for “Contemporary Pieces”. In 2014 Contemporary Pieces was released and exhibited at Cafe Karrusell in Hamburg and was featured in several international blogs like IGNANT and CNN and published in magazines such as We Demain and Das Philosophie Magazin. To gain more knowledge and a deeper understanding of the creative film industry, I interned from September to December 2014 at 1staveMachine in New York. After an amazing time in New York I moved on to liv for 3 months on an Island to work on my Book „Never – Never Land„. My first photography book discusses the romantic idea of backpacking in developing countries on a self-experiment. The Book was self-published with a limited edition of 50, was featured by VICE and on show at the bookstore of the House of Photography, Deichtorhallen in Hamburg. Now it’s sold out. The past 15 months I spent living in Melbourne, Australia and traveling South East Asia. At the moment you can find me 5 days a week at the office at VICE Germany in Berlin.
