Barbara Kasten: Stages

Edited by Alex Klein. Text by Liz Deschenes, Alex Kitnick, Alex Klein, Jenni Sorkin.

Featured image is reproduced from <i>Barbara Kasten: Stages</i>.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.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Hyperallergic

Harry Swartz-Turfle

Her work lives in the boundaries between appearances and structure, which can only be mediated through experience.

Metropolis

Misha Volf

Kasten's subjects are for her as much real spaces and things that she manipulates, reshapes, and occupies, as they are instrumental props useful only toward the ultimate goal of the photographs.

Metropolis Magazine

Misha Volf

Kasten's subjects are for her as much real spaces and things that she manipulates, reshapes, and occupies, as they are instrumental props useful only toward the ultimate goal of the photographs… She masterfully deconstructs architecture and materiality.

Announcing the Fall 2015 ARTBOOK | D.A.P. Catalogue

Before you delve into our new catalogue, take another look at Barbara Kasten's "Construct NYC-4" (1983), reproduced on the front cover from JRP | Ringier's excellent monograph accompanying her exhibition at ICA Philadelphia. Glanced at quickly, this image might seem to be a digital manipulation. But it's not; it's "real." Kasten's working process combines sculpture (she constructs three-dimensional "stage-sets"), performance (she physically moves within and around her props and lights them theatrically) and photography (she sets up her camera to frame a particular two-dimensional image). The resulting "reality" that Kasten shows us is the product of an individual act of seeing. As Andy Grundberg has eloquently written, "the photographs remind us that what we see depends on how we choose to see it."
