This tall, slim, concise volume--filled from front to back with full bleed images--collects recent collage work by the influential New York-based, Budapest-born artist, musician and performer Rita Ackermann--who is represented in New York by Andrea Rosen Gallery. Writing in The New York Times, Roberta Smith described the collage works thus: "Ms. Ackermann is equally at home with scissors or ballpoint pen; with finely rendered figures and poetic phrases or words and images clipped from newspapers and magazines; and with clogged compositions or spare ones. Women--as victors, victims or silent witnesses--appear in all situations." In this volume, installation shots and details but up against one another, drawing the viewer into a world of powerful female physicality. Ackermann's work was featured at the 2008 Whitney Biennial.
