Published on the occasion of the exhibition Barbara Kruger: Pre-Digital 1980-1992, this catalogue includes 44 color plates of Kruger’s works created before the widespread use of digital imagery. From her experience as an editorial designer, Kruger’s “paste-ups” construct messages using a commercial technique, focusing attention on how images and words have the power to make meaning – to construct who we are and who we want to be.
“… her work resonates for its audacity in attacking assumptions of power as much for transforming, through her choice of public address, the essence of art itself” (Steven Heller in Thinking of You).
