Lisa Oppenheim: Works 2003-2013

Lisa Oppenheim
Sternberg Press
24 × 33 cm
160 pgs
Contemporary Art

Over the past decade, artist Lisa Oppenheim has steadily developed a unique body of work exploring the usage of (historical) imagery. Balanced between appropriation and reconstruction, her work relies on substitutions applied to photographic and filmic records through which the historical and the present are transmitted and constituted through a language of today. One could define her work as an archaeology of time and visual culture. By exposing, or even reexposing, archival material, Oppenheim bridges the past and the present by introducing new meaning to these historical images, often resulting in film and photographic projects.

Works 2003–2013 is Lisa Oppenheim’s first monographic publication and is copublished with Grazer Kunstverein, Kunstverein in Hamburg, and FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, on occasion of the artist’s exhibition “From Abigail to Jacob (Works 2004–2014)” at Grazer Kunstverein.
