Omtale Birgit Jurgenssen: I Am.
This mesmerising collection of photography, drawing, and sculpture showcases the work of Birgit Jurgenssen, an Austrian avant-garde artist. Birgit Jurgenssen (1949 - 2003), one of Austria's leading avant-garde artists - was a strong feminist and fierce advocate for women in the arts. This volume draws on the comprehensive spectrum of Jurgenssen's oeuvre, rooted in deconstructing stereotypical relationships. Starting in the late sixties, Jurgenssen's early vibrant illustrations and surrealist, dreamlike photographs explored gender and societal restraints. Her hybrid human forms debunked gender codes and blurred the lines between humans, plants, and animals. This inspiring book reveals Jurgenssen's prescient and revolutionary work and reaffirms her legacy of challenging boundaries in art and in life. AUTHORS: Natascha Burger is Executive Director of the Estate Birgit Jurgenssen, Vienna, Austria. Nicole Fritz is Director of Kunsthalle Tubingen, Germany. SELLING POINTS: Birgit Jurgenssen was an Austrian avant-garde artist in the 1970s. She worked in all types of media including photography, sculpture, drawing, and video. Birgit Jurgenssen's work explores intimacy and gender. These themes are very topical right now and may allow this book to garner more attention. 270 colour images
