description
Artists‘ Books often question the medium of the book regarding linearity, structure, and the author/reader relationship. One such Artist Book is “Mach dich hübsch” by Isa Genzken. Using referential material like black and white copies, clippings from advertisements next to sketches and illustrations, postcards of historical paintings, and handwritten notes, Genzken provides insight into her visual language. In this two-semester class, we will be discussing the poetics of art books: their metaphor, their conceptual space, and their narrative and non-narrative sequencing. We will mainly focus on feminist and queer artistic strategies unfolding in the books. The class will culminate with the production of your own artists‘ book.
