Isa Genzken

I Love New York, Crazy City

A student at the dynamic Düsseldorf Academy during the 1960s, Genzken has since consistently challenged Modernist imperatives in her explorations of the relationships between public and private space, artistic autonomy and collective experience.

As this printed project demonstrates, by publishing for the first time the three collage books she realized in 1995 – 1996 in New York, her work is concerned with what surrounds us and shapes our everyday existence, from design, advertising, and the media, to her most enduring subject, architecture and the urban environment.

This publication demonstrates to what extent the artist is interested in the ways in which aesthetic styles embody and enforce political and social ideologies.
