Dietlind Wagner is a artist, graphic designer and educator living in New Zealand. In 2011, out of the blue, she started making the Dede puppets. Originally they were conceived as heads only (no bodies) but they very quickly developed a life of their own, demanded dresses to be made and are up to mischief every since.
The Dedes are a troupe of distinctive dada-style art puppets created by Dietlind Wagner in 2011. In the Super Dede Competition five unlikely contestants battle out who amongst them is the most popular. Discover how the contestants cope with scary moments and unexpected situations. And don't be surprised if you find traits of your friends (or enemies) in the way the puppets carry on.
