- We can order this
Bold, philosophical, radical, subversive: the art of Barbara Kruger focuses on decoding the social-psychological messages embedded in popular culture. Marrying pictures to words in a variety of media and sites, Kruger raises issues of power politics, sexuality, and representation. Borrowing slogans and phrases from the lexicon of thought, and using the potent weapon of pure graphics, Kruger's art offers up powerfully distilled messages of word and image. This beautifully designed book is the most comprehensive volume on Kruger's body of work to date. The book explores her work over the past thirty years, including many previously unpublished works. Aptly designed to embody a manifesto-like aesthetic, the book also presents bold spreads of the artist's large-scale works and public projects, which confront such controversial and weighty topics as abortion, consumerism, spirituality, and identity.
