The Munich artist studied sculpture at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Munich under Prof. Olaf Metzel. She received numerous stipends, among them, the DAAD Stipend for Japan, and the Förderpreis der Stadt München and in 2007 she founded, together with Bazon Brock and Wolfgang Ullrich, the “Ascetes of Luxury – Covenant of the Golden Chopsticks”. Senge thematizes the value of objects and consumer goods in everyday social and socio-political contexts in her installations, videos, and photographic works, and in her actions with participants, both chosen and anonymous. Through her artistic analysis, Senge aims to maintain a critical attitude to consumption and consumer goods.
