She participated as a film editor in a number of Yugoslav films and TV serials and also in international Co-productions. 1978 began her career as a university teacher first in Zagreb, then in London, Boston, Salzburg in the Netherlands and then since 1992 also in Germany at the Deutsche Film- und Fernsehakademie Berlin (DFFB, German Film and Television Academy Berlin), the "Konrad Wolf" University for film and television Potsdam-Babelsberg and the HTW Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin (German, University of Applied Sciences) in Berlin.


Since 1990 she has worked together with her husband and partner Heiko Daxl under the name "mediainmotion" and "dafü®" in the fields of film, video art, visual music, CD-ROM, DVD, digital art, graphics, photo, installation and Mixed Media. Both established in Zagreb starting from 1993 and still during the war in Croatia the exhibition series Media Scape with international media art at the Museum for Contemporary Art in Zagreb (until 1999) and since 2005 in the Galerija Rigo and Muzej Lapidarium in Novigrad (Cittánova) in the Croatian region of Istria. In the year 2006 this manifestation was extended in co-operation with Noam Braslavsky under the title Strictly Berlin in the Galerie der Künste (GdK) in Berlin.

Besides their own artistic oeuvre, their teaching activity and their cooperation at the studio for electroacoustic music of the Akademie der Künste in Berlin (1995–2002) they have worked in the context of concerts and theatre performances also with contemporary composers such as Georg Katzer, Wolfgang Rihm, Hans Joachim Hespos, Frano Parac, Gerhard Staebler, Mona Mur, Jorge Reyes, Steve Roach, Suso Saiz, Kunsu Shin, Amnon Wolman, Bert Wrede, Dror Feiler, Masami Akita (Merzbow), Zbigniew Karkowski, Elliott Sharp, Tobias P.M. Schneid, Valerio Pizzorno, Igor Kuljerić and Mario Verandi and the ensembles Ensemble Modern, Neue Vokalsolisten, Ensemble Belcanto, Zeitkratzer, ensemble varianti, Ensemble 13.

Heiko Daxl and Ingeborg Fülepp are renowned video and media artists who are at home in Berlin and in Zagreb and who are recognized in both cities. Since 1991 they work together as an artistic couple. The numerous works they have created bear witness to their joy of experimenting, always moving on the borderline to the unknown. Employing new technologies, they investigate different, so far unknown optic and acoustic phenomena. The observer's senses, his hearing, his sight and his touch, are always consciously engaged, irritating his perception. Daxl and Fülepp show new ways in the artistic exploration of the technical possibilities of creating sounds and abstract images which force the observer to an integrated reception. They seek to make the recipient think about the reality which is imparted to him in an artificial and technical way.
