| Survey of the work by the Canadian multimedia artist
This monograph is the first extensive survey of the most important works by Czech-born Canadian artist Vera Frenkel. Her contemplative, transdisciplinary projects have been a presence on the international scene since the 1970s. Her installations, videos, writings, and websites address central issues in an age that is more affected by human migration, and violence than any other. Among her topics are politics of the archive, the impact of media on the shaping of cultural memory and forgetting, and the interplay of institutional and individual narratives. Among the works featured are String Games: Improvisations for Inter-City Video, No Solution: A Suspense Thriller; The Secret Life of Cornelia Lumsden (1979/1986); and …from the Transit Bar, (first seen at documenta IX 1992), Body Missing, (1994), and recent works such as ONCE NEAR WATER (2008-09) and The Blue Train (work in progress, 2012). (German edition ISBN 978-3-7757-3246-8)
»This large-format book is immediately impressive, with fine-quality glossy paper, lavish illustrations, and substantial, scholarly essays, further amlified by selected scripts and voice-over texts. Biographical information and bibliography, along with documentation of exhibitions and productions, residencies and awards, complete the volume.«
