Over the last 15 years, Cosima von Bonin has produced sculpture, photography, textile “paintings,” installation, performance, film, video and music--often combined in large installations. This generous survey addresses ideas of play, indoctrination, structure, improvisation, cultural and gender representations, identity and self-reflection--with both absurdity and humor.

Born in Kenya in 1962 and currently living in Cologne, Cosima von Bonin's artistic practice displays a versatility that is astonishing. Producing pictures, sculptures, installations, performances, and films, she also creates fabric works from a diversity of textiles, consciously employing the traditionally feminine techniques of sewing and embroidery, and organizes large group projects, produces videos, manages festivals, and deejays. This book was conceived by the artist herself.
