Exhibition Title

Astrid Klein

Exhibition Description

Astrid Klein, one of Germany’s most distinguished conceptual artists, has played a crucial role as European counterpart to the American Pictures Generation since the late 1970s, and is considered a female pioneer of large-scale photography. Underpinned by the formal and aesthetic principles of collage, Klein’s practice examines, deconstructs and renews the relationship between image and text to question prevailing power structures and modes of perception and representation. In her multilayered works, she combines her artistic source material drawn from philosophy, literature, political discourse, and film to establish new links of meaning. Sprüth Magers is pleased to present Astrid Klein’s very first solo exhibition in New York, which focuses on two historical bodies of work: a selection of early “photoworks” from 1979 alongside canvases from her White Paintings series (1988-93), all of which showcase the core ideas of her alluring and complex oeuvre.
