Biography

Annekathrin Bürger was born on April 3, 1937, in Berlin-Charlottenburg and grew up in the Saxon village of Hornhausen near Oschersleben. She became a commercial artist for the HO atelier Bernburg, and then worked as a production design assistant and property master. But she failed the qualifying exam for the national drama school in Berlin/GDR. In the summer of 1955, Bürger met a Czech film crew and played a small role as a pioneer leader in the frame story of "Gebirge und Meer".

Shortly after, director Gerhard Klein discovered her for a part of a natural and naive young girl. Her movie debut, "Eine Berliner Romanze" was convincing and thus, Bürger attended drama school at the Potsdam-Babelsberg film school for three years. Besides, she regularly starred in DEFA movies, for instance, as the poised art school student Sonja in Slatan Dudow's "Die Verwirrung der Liebe". From 1960 on, Bürger performed for three years at Theater der Bergarbeiter in Senftenberg and then became a cast member at Berlin's Volksbühne. In 1968, Bürger won the Berliner Zeitung award of "Best actress of the season" for her part as grave digger/prostitute/nun Enea in Dario Fo's "Siebentes: Stiehl ein bißchen weniger!"

 

She celebrated even larger succes on the TV screen and in movies. With her parts as Hannelore in Kurt Maetzig's "Septemberliebe", and especially her parts as bourgeois girl Magdalena in Frank Beyer's "Königskinder" ("Royal Children") and as Petra Ledig in the TV movie "Wolf unter Wölfen", based on a story by Hans Fallada, Bürger became the most popular GDR actress of the 1960s alongside Angelica Domröse. She starred in light entertainment movies, in GDR western films ("Tecumseh", "Tödlicher Irrtum"). Her last, and personally important, film was "Der Rest, der bleibt" (1990), directed by Bodo Fürneisen.

Annekathrin Bürger was active in cultural policy in the GDR and often showed moral courage, for instance with her protest against Wolf Biermann's expatriation. In 1990, she became the chair woman of Kongress der Nationalen Bürgerbewegung. In the 1990s, Bürger was seen in several TV series, for instance as Corinna Grimm in "Wir sind auch nur ein Volk". Many TV viewers might know her from her succinct supporting role in the Leipzig branch of the "Tatort" crime series where Bürger starred as the best friend of inspector Bruno Ehrlicher from 1999 to 2007. Furthermore, her most important film and TV parts since 1990 include Bernd Böhlich's psychological drama "Mobbing: Die lieben Kollegen" (1995) and the award-winning drama "Die Mörderin" (1999), also starring Ann-Kathrin Kramer and Jürgen Hentsch.
