This publication presents the newest project of Sicilian-born, Berlin-based artist Rosa Barba (born 1972). The project revolves around a 35-millimeter film, Time as Perspective, shot in the desert landscape of Texas, which she portrays in an almost archaeological idiom.

Sicilian filmmaker Rosa Barba (born 1972) interrogates and decontextualizes the language of mainstream moviemaking through the medium of film itself and in sculptural installations. This selection of film stills, preproduction sketches and photographs illustrates Barba's preoccupation with the truth claims of mass-circulated cultural artifacts.
