Andrea Büttner


German artist and 2017 Turner Prize nominee Andrea Büttner examines depictions of beggars in visual culture in an artist’s book about poverty, art history, theology, and the politics of social benefits.

Büttner, whose work addresses notions of shame, vulnerability, and dignity, presents a recent series of woodcuts, as well research conducted at the Warburg Institute in London, including sixteenth-century vignettes from the ‘Liber Vagatorum’ and a visual essay on the iconography of shepherds and kings in nativity scenes.

Accompanies the exhibitions at Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna; Musée régional d’art contemporain Occitanie / Pyrénées-Méditerranée, Sérignan, France and Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen, Bergen Kunsthall, Norway.
