Published on the occasion of the exhibition Jenny Holzer: ENDGAME, this catalogue features full plate images and an essay by art historian Cary Levine titled, “Under Cover of Darkness: Jenny Holzer’s Endgame Paintings” published in both German and English.
Upon her move to New York in the late 1970s, Holzer surrendered the medium of painting – thirty years later, she returned after discovering a number of redacted U.S. government documents where little was legible. Holzer took the opaque documents and created her 2012 series which alter censorship to graphic geometric shapes, playing on Suprematism, color, and scale. The surviving text is original. Holzer’s subtle alterations exacerbate how much one isn’t allowed to see.
