Over the past five decades, the American artist Barbara
Kasten has created an impressive multimedia oeuvre, centered
around her compelling photographs. Her works can be found in
some of the most important museum collections worldwide
(including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Tate Modern,
London, and Centre Pompidou, Paris). The bilingual publication
Barbara Kasten: Works (English / German), produced in close
collaboration with the artist, presents a comprehensive overview
of her oeuvre on more than 250 pages with numerous large-format
illustrations – from early sculptures and photograms to her
usually colorful, concrete photographs and the most recent
video installations. The accompanying essays by Carol S. Eliel,
Elena Engelbrechter, Anette Hüsch, Alex Klein, and Magdalena
Kröner, as well as Andreas Beitin’s extensive interview with the
artist, provide profound insight into the multifaceted work of
Barbara Kasten.
