German multimedia artist Michaela Meiser’s first monograph, Ding und Körper focuses on two groups of work which address respectively the inanimate object and the human body. Minimalist-style sculptures investigate the purpose and meaning of objects and tools, and in a series of self-portrait photographs Meise pays homage to artist Valie Export.
