Woman Power: Maria Lassnig in New York 1968–1980Woman Power: Maria Lassnig in New York 1968–1980

Published by Petzel.
Edited by Janine Latham. Text by Elisabeth Bronfen.

In 1968 at age 49, the painter Maria Lassnig (1919–2014) moved from her residence in Paris to New York City to be in, as she called it, “the country of strong women.” Although well known in her native Austria, Lassnig was virtually unheard of in the States and for the next 12 years she lived in relative anonymity, renting walk-ups in the Lower East Side and SoHo. New York offered Lassnig a liberation of sorts from the male-dominated art scene of Europe: it gave her the opportunity to be an artist, not simply a female artist.

This book brings together works and archival material from her time in New York from 1968 to 1980, including films that Lassnig created in collaboration with the Women/Artists/Filmmakers, Inc. group.

Maria Lassnig: The Future Is Invented with Fragments from the PastMaria Lassnig: The Future Is Invented with Fragments from the Past

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Edited with text by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Peter Pakesch, Denys Zacharopoulos. Foreword by Peter Pakesch. Text by Daniela Hammer-Tugendhat, Ingrid Rowland, Elisabeth Schlebrügge, Amy Sillman.

This book documents the last exhibition project that Austrian painter Maria Lassnig (1919–2014) was able to plan personally with the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist.

It gathers around 50 works—paintings and works on paper, especially watercolors—that deploy motifs from Greek mythology, also expressing characteristics typical of her work: the awareness of the body, the painterly rendering of the inner and outer world, as well as animal portraits and landscapes. The Future Is Invented with Fragments from the Past includes contributions from leading scholars and artists discussing her unique visual idiom.

Maria Lassnig: Works, Diaries & WritingsMaria Lassnig: Works, Diaries & Writings

Published by Koenig Books.
Text by Silvia Eiblmayr, Maria Lassnig, Laurence Rassel.

Focusing on Maria Lassnig's (1919-2014) elaborations of the self-portrait and her exploration of her personal relations with the object, the animal and the machine, Works, Diaries & Writings includes work made by the artist from 1942 up until shortly before her death in 2014 at age 94.
As an artist, Lassnig was preoccupied with a relentless self-questioning that she continued throughout her life. Her painting aimed at "body awareness," an effort to represent on canvas how her body felt to her from the inside. Her self-portraits were frequently expressed in traumatic, surrealistic forms that merged the human figure with the animal and the machine. This new volume presents 45 of Lassnig's paintings alongside a selection of her watercolors, videos, letters, photographs, drawings, writings (including from the artist's diaries) and archival material.

Maria Lassnig: In the Mirror of PossibilitiesMaria Lassnig: In the Mirror of Possibilities

Watercolors and Drawings from 1947 to the Present

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Julia Friedrich. Text by Elisabeth Bronfen, Julia Friedrich, Oswald Wiener.

There are few enough female artists who have maintained an international reputation across the entire second half of the twentieth century and into the twenty-first, but fortunately the Austrian painter Maria Lassnig (born 1919) is one of them. Lassnig has painted and drawn for over 60 years, and the freshness of her work only increases as she continues to give body (or bodies) to her emotions--sometimes seriously, sometimes humorously--on canvas and on paper. In the Mirror of Possibilities focuses on her very personal drawings and watercolors, from early drawings of the 1940s and her "body sensation drawings," to the New York animations and the more painterly forms found in her watercolors of the 1980s and 1990s. But the bulk of this volume is devoted to Lassnig's most recent works, in which the artist combines simple pencil drawing with strangely lurid backgrounds, advancing her admirable will to reconstrue the body by means of art.
