In the course of nearly three decades of experimental exploration into the potential it holds for art, Katharina Sieverding has developed photography into a form of expression that has played a pioneering role in the growth of contemporary art photography. Featuring the photo-artist's contribution to the 1997 Venice Biennale, this book offers an up-to-date look at Katherina Sieverding's artistic development. The four work groups featured here represent a renewed attempt to deal with the question of how it is possible to create identity in a reality that denies the Other, the invisible, indeed death itself an existence of its own in favor of its "photographable face". They show counter-images achieved through the montage of photographic images of reality, pictures that direct an animated gaze "back" into an ambivalent future. The artist: Katharina Sieverding, born 1944 in Prague; studies at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Hamburg, 1963-1964; studies at the Staatliche Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, master student under Joseph Beuys, 1964-1972; travel and studies in the US, the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union, 1972-1988; professor at the Hochschule der Künste, Berlin, since 1992; lives and works in Düsseldorf.
