I’m Isa Genzken, The Only Female Fool
Nicolaus Schafhausen & Joan Müller (Eds.)
One of Germany’s most influential contemporary sculptors, Isa Genzken chose the title “The Only F emale F ool” for this slender volume accompanying the comprehensive exhibition of her work at the Kunsthalle Wien (2014), which comes on the heels of her major retrospective at MOMA, N ew York. Her fascination with architecture and space as social spheres is here explored in the collision of the minimal and abstract urban high rise, the decorative clothing and mirrored surfaces in her work from 1973 to the present. Genzken’s collaboration with artists Dan Graham, Gordon Matta-Clark, Jasper Johns, Gerhard Richter and Wolfgang Tillmans is brought into focus in the accompanying essays by New York-based theorist Joshua Decter and art historian Tom McDonough. Preface by curator Nicolaus Schafhausen. This easy-to-carry pocket-sized catalog is an excellent go-to publication on Genzken’s work and history.
