Karin Mack - Räume des Selbst

Räume des Selbst


In her review of works entitled Räume des Selbst [Spaces of the Self] Karin Mack brings together works spanning more than 35 years. The Viennese artist has been a leading protagonist of feminist and performative art since the 1970s and, working from her self-portraits/selfimages, has regularly revisited the medium of landscape. In the interplay between these two artistic genres she produces associative images through the highest concentration of form. In a sort of remake she uses found-footage material, photo-analytical experiments such as her negative prints—for instance her legendary series entitled Weiße Schatten auf schwarzem Schnee [White Shadows on Black Snow] from 1982—to create a type of Gesamtkunstwerk, or total work of art, which surprisingly emerges as a lifework of art. The two essays by Astrid Peterle and Angela Schwank are complemented by the author’s own texts.
