Renate Bertlmann : Works 1969-2016 Hardback
Edited by Gabriele Schor, Jessica Morgan
The artist Renate Bertlmann, who lives and works in Vienna, is a preeminent representative of the feminist avant-garde.
This book presents 250 illustrations that unfold a panorama of a creative output spanning over five decades.
The artist's inspiration for her work is amo ergo sum (I love therefore I am).
Five international writers discuss the themes of "Pornography," "Irony," and "Utopia" in Bertlmann's oeuvre.
In her work, she deftly arranges clashes between opposites: sexual pleasure and asceticism, female and male, soft and hard, attraction and repulsion.
Ambivalent feelings between tenderness and aggression come to the fore, fueling Bertlmann's subversive politics.
An in-depth interview, a filmography, and a chronological list of her performances round out this book compiled by the Viennese collection SAMMLUNG VERBUND
