Published by Graham Foundation/ D.A.P..
Edited by Ellen Alderman, Elisa Leshowitz. Text by Alex Klein.

In 1973, American artist Barbara Kasten (born 1936) began experimenting with various photographic and printing techniques, resulting in a series of 24 diazotypes--a process used to produce architectural blueprints. For these staged mise-en-scène works, produced while Kasten lived in California, a female student was hired by the artist to pose in various photographs on a chair outdoors. In them, a kind of performance unfolds, in which the body becomes entangled in forms and shapes, the overlaid printed grid on the photographs emphasizing the human figure against a determined space. These images--with their clear Bauhaus influence, insistence on the two-dimensional plane and determined staging--initially appear to be totally unlike the abstract conceptual photography for which Kasten has become known, but are nonetheless a visible precursor to her later work. This unique artist's book marks the very first publication of the Diazotypes series, with each copy signed and numbered by Kasten. It includes an interview with the artist conducted by curator Alex Klein, who organized the first major survey of Kasten's work at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia, in 2015. This highly collectible publication is a wonderful tribute to the lesser-known work of an interdisciplinary artist and offers readers a glimpse into the continuities throughout her ongoing practice.

Barbara Kasten: StagesBarbara Kasten: Stages

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Alex Klein. Text by Liz Deschenes, Alex Kitnick, Alex Klein, Jenni Sorkin.

Since the 1970s, Chicago-based artist Barbara Kasten (born 1936) has developed her expansive practice of photography through the lens of many disciplines, including sculpture, painting, theater, textile and installation. Spanning her nearly five-decade engagement with abstraction, light and architectonic form, this publication situates Kasten's practice within current conversations around sculpture and photography.
Kasten was one of the first artists to be invited by Polaroid to use its new large-format film, and it was with this that she made many of her best-known works. In the mid-1980s she stepped out of the studio and began working with large architectural spaces that were symbolic of both economic and cultural capital.
Barbara Kasten: Stages is the first major survey of her work. The publication includes a biography of the artist, a conversation between Kasten and artist Liz Deschenes, and new essays by curator Alex Klein, and art historians Alex Kitnick and Jenni Sorkin.
