Friderike Heuer practiced Criminal Law in Germany until 1981. After immigrating to the U.S. in 1987, she received her Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology from the New School for Social Research. From 1988 to 2003, she taught the seminar “Visual Perception, Cognition and Social Psychology” at Lewis & Clark College. Her research concerns the memory of emotional events, including eye-witness memory. She serves on the Board of the National Council of Jewish Women and Zeitgeist NW, an organization she co-founded in order to bring modern German culture to the Pacific Northwest. Over the last three years, she has been exhibiting photomontage work in the U.S. and in Germany, work often focused on issues of social justice.
