Birgit Graschopf. Monograph.

About this project

A book of my art work. The presented projects incorporate multiple media – photography, performance, installation, video and drawing – to display human beings in modern society, in their personal, social and local environments. The monograph will be published by the Verlag für Moderne Kunst and will include contributions by 5 scholars that discuss the different emphases of my work, in English and German. The expected date of publication is June 2016.

The purpose

The book will be an extensive, curated overview of the complex oeuvre developed over 17 intense and thrilling years. This is my first monograph and I think this is the right moment for it. The accompanying commentaries and essays of the scholars will increase understanding of my work through historical and philosophical contextualization. With this bilingual monograph it will be possible to reach and to inspire a wider international audience than ever before!
