In her painting, German artist Maja Vukoje explores cultural hybridity and transculturality a basic conditions of our globalised lives.
Over various stages of her artistic career, Vukoje has developed a distinct artistic language in which she not only focuses on the mixture and fusion of elements of different cultures as visual motifs.
This book comprises more than 200 images from the past 15 years, with an emphasis on her most recent work series.
Tropical fruits and so-called colonial goods like coffee and sugar come face to face with symbols of our digitised everyday lives, motifs from popular culture, and iconic works of painterly abstraction.
