Barbara Kruger: Desire Exists Where Pleasure Is Absent

Veit Görner, Frank-Thorsten Moll, Hilke Wagner, Barbara Kruger

Kestner Gesellschaft & Kerber Verlag, 2006



Since the 1980s, Barbara Kruger has been widely considered one of the most important artists of her generation. A brilliant conceptualist who works with abrasive, large-format text and image collages, often installed to create overwhelming, all-encompassing propagandistic environments, she appropriates advertising imagery and other symbols of conspicuous consumption to question stereotypes and ask questions about identity and the cultural representation of power. This volume documents a 2006 graphic installation as well as the video installation, Twelve, both installed at kestnergesellschaft in Hannover.
