Description

Originally published to accompany an exhibition organized by Elizabeth A. T. Smith at Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (September 17 – November 12, 1995) as part of the museum’s Focus Series. Since 1994, Uta Barth has been creating a series of photographs which consist of blurred images generated by focusing the camera on an unoccupied foreground. These unframed, empty, but lushly seductive images present only background information, implying the absence of subjects, and referring to the function of images as containers of information and the role of the viewer in reading that information.
