Gego: 1957-1988

Thinking the Line

Edited by Nadja Peter Weibel. Essays by Bruno Bosteels, Kaira Marie Caba“as, Hannah Feldman, Julieta Gonzlez and Juan Carlos Ledezma. Texts by Lourdes Blanco, Maria Luz Crdenas, Hanni Ossott, Maria Fernanda Palacios, Luis P»rez Oramas and Marta Traba.

Venezuelan sculptor Gertrud Luise Goldschmidt (1912-1994), who worked under the pseudonym Gego, was one of the most important representatives of Latin American Geometric Abstractionism. Born in Germany, Goldschmidt became an architect and later immigrated to Caracas in 1939, where she radically altered the nature of modernist sculpture, countering the deductive logic of 1960s abstraction with a fluid conceptualism, reconfiguring "content-less" art into an open-ended process of "thinking the line." The most comprehensive examination of Gego's art published in English to date, this monograph contains deep analyses by scholars from a range of disciplines as well as previously untranslated historical texts, offering new perspectives on Gego's critical relationships to Venezuelan urbanism and kineticism, the New York avant-garde, and the European modernist traditions of Bauhaus and Russian Constructivism. Includes an illustrated chronology and an extensive plate section featuring three decades of sculpture and drawings.
