A revelatory excavation of Genzken's early oeuvre, defying expectations of form and narrative Isa Genzken (born 1948) is one of Germany’s most prominent contemporary artists. This new volume is dedicated to the artist’s early works, beginning with pieces executed while she was still a student at the Düsseldorf Academy of Fine Arts and closing with examples of Genzken’s creative output right before she moved to Cologne with then-husband Gerhard Richter.The book takes into consideration the prevailing influence of Minimalism and Conceptualism, and the ways in which Genzken’s early work constituted a response to such trends. Though her work appears at first to frequently consist of exercises in geometric abstraction, upon closer inspection, many of Genzken’s pieces reveal echoes of the artist’s own life, including meditations on personal relationships and the unpredictability of desire.Genzken’s work in drawing, photography, computer printouts and films is highlighted alongside her sculptures, with essays by Simon Baier, Jutta Koether and Griselda Pollock.
