    Información

    After studying art and design, Barbara Kruger (born 1945) was employed as a graphic artist and picture editor by the publisher Condé Nast, working on magazines such as Mademoiselle and House and Garden. Her experience of the power of pictures here, their potential to deter and to seduce, was an early influence on Barbara Kruger’s work.

    Characterized by their high degree of political commitment, her works support women’s rights, freedom of opinion, and a critical awareness of consumer society. Her installations, videos, and photographs also appeal to us by reflecting the art system, whose confines she repeatedly escapes in developing projects for magazines, billboards, or other media.

     

    There have been big solo exhibitions of Barbara Kruger’s work at well-known institutions such as the Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, the Whitney Museum New York, and the Moderna Museet Stockholm. She has also twice exhibited at the documenta and she received the Golden Lion for her life work at the Venice Biennale in 2005.

    In her show at the Kunsthaus Bregenz Barbara Kruger will present a wide range of works in different media and will be realizing new installations designed in connection with Peter Zumthor’s outstanding architecture.
