Jutta Koether’s new artist book, Libertine, documents and interprets her eponymous exhibition at Museum Abteiberg, a major installation that delved into the museum’s history.
The artist designed the book and its fold-out (leporello) cover, presenting her latest series of paintings from 2018 to 2020 and their intersection with central works in the Mönchengladbach-based collection. The second part of the book contains a dossier of materials from her studio.
Three new essays by Ewa Lajer-Burcharth, Jenny Nachtigall and Nathan Stobaugh together with a postface by Susanne Titz offer a comprehensive art historical exploration of the artist, considered one of today’s leading contemporary painters.
Published after the exhibition, Jutta Koether: Libertine at Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach, Germany (13 October 2019 – 16 February 2020).
