The Austrian Birgit Jürgenssen (1949–2003) was one of the most outstanding feminist avant-garde artists in the world. Starting from the liberating potential of Surrealism and in a dialogue with her generation’s discourse on social critique, beginning in the late sixties she developed a multilayered, stylistically multifaceted kind of art. The female body and its metamorphoses were the focus of her work, which predominately comprised drawing, painting, and photography. The Sammlung Verbund has made possible the first monograph on her work. This richly illustrated volume includes previously unknown pieces from the artist’s estate, provides an analysis of Jürgenssen’s autonomous stance in art history, and examines her relationship to literature, psychoanalysis, and Structuralism.

Birgit Jürgenssen

Birgit Jürgenssen's work constitutes an activity of demystification, of unveiling what fetishism seeks to repress or disavow. What is remarkable is how inventively, playfully, imaginatively and above all, critically, Jürgenssen managed to dissect, expose and indeed deconstruct the psychic fetishism attached to the representation of femininity.

Abigail Solomon-Godeau, excerpted from her essay, "If the Shoe Fits: Fetishism, Femininity and Birgit Jürgenssen's Schuhwerk, published in Birgit Jürgenssen.
