Katharina Sieverding - In Austria 1964–2008

In Austria 1964–2008


Vol. 1 Salzburg

Soon after she began as a young artist documenting Joseph Beuys, Katharina Sieverding developed into a full-fledged member of the supremely influential community of Dusseldorf-based artists – including the Bechers and Sigmar Polka, among others – with her ground-breaking, monumental photo-collages. This beautifully produced monograph is an appraisal of Sieverding’s complete works to date, the first book ever to bring her work in well-deserved detail to American readers. Born in Czechoslovkia, Sieverding has long made huge, deeply political photo-based works that anticipated the direction taken by Americans like Barbara Kruger and Richard Price. Her work is edgy and evocative, with strong graphic qualities, historical references, and sly political commentary. Both as an artist and a teacher/mentor to others, her influence is unsurpassed among her peers. With excellent interpretive essays in English and German.

Katharina Sieverding, born 1944 in Prague, lives in Düsseldorf and Berlin. Multiple participations at Documenta (d5, d6, d7) and Biennals. Since 1992 Professor for Visual Culture Studies at the Art University in Berlin.
