Barbara Kruger’s images and words engage issues of power, pleasure, money, love, and death. Her photographs, large scale textual installations, and immersive multi-channel video work address the viewer through a kind of intensely spatialized visual display. The oeuvre, which has been continuously developed over several decades, will be examined from differing perspectives in an in-depth conversation between the artist, Beatriz Colomina (architectural theorist and historian), and Mark Wigley (architect and architectural theorist). The concept of the exhibition at Kunsthaus Bregenz, and the new work which has been especially produced for it, will be examined in Yilmaz Dziewior’s introductory essay. The catalog’s comprehensive documentation of the installation in generous photographic spreads, designed in close cooperation with the artist, demonstrates the enormous currency of the statements as well as the powerful forms of address within Barbara Kruger’s work.
