Dara Birnbaum: The Dark Matter of Media Light

Regular price $60.00 $60.00 Sale

Published on the occasion of the first major retrospective of Dara Birnbaum's work. Since the 1970s Dara Birnbaum has been studying and making art about mass media. Her videos and installations often focus on the way we look at political events and how we are influenced and manipulated by images, television, and the media in general. This book combines photographs of these and other works with fascinating dialogues between Birnbaum and the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist as well as numerous insightful critical essays. Including never-before-released images from the artist's personal archives and bringing together early and recent works, this book is the most comprehensive resource available on this important figure in contemporary art.
