Maria Lassnig : Werke Tagebucher & Schriften. Works, Diaries & Writings.
Focusing on Maria Lassnig's (1919-2014) elaborations of the self-portrait and her exploration of her personal relations with the object, the animal and the machine, Works, Diaries & Writings includes work made by the artist from 1942 up until shortly before her death in 2014 at age 94. As an artist, Lassnig was preoccupied with a relentless self-questioning that she continued throughout her life. Her painting aimed at "body awareness," an effort to represent on canvas how her body felt to her from the inside. Her self-portraits were frequently expressed in traumatic, surrealistic forms that merged the human figure with the animal and the machine. This new volume presents 45 of Lassnig's paintings alongside a selection of her watercolors, videos, letters, photographs, drawings, writings (including from the artist's diaries) and archival material.
