Gego: The Architecture of an Artist

Edited by Ulrike Groos, Philip Kurz, Stefanie Reisinger, Kerstin Thomas. Text by Maristella Casciato, Hannia Gómez, Sabine Mainberger, Stefanie Reisinger.

Paradigms and themes of the architectural in Gego’s drawings and sculptures

From 1932 to 1938, before emigrating to Venezuela, Gego (1912–94) studied architecture and engineering at the Stuttgart Polytechnic University. In 1955—as she began to become active as an artist—she wrote to her former professor, Paul Bonatz: “Even if I have strayed from architecture and found myself unable to master life through it, it has nonetheless shaped me, to some degree at least.” Conceptual approaches and practical ideas about architecture and processes of space creation remained a constant theme in her art.
This book is published for the exhibition Gego: The Architecture of an Artist at the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart. The Fundación Gego’s permanent loan to the museum of 100 works has made it possible to illuminate this architectural theme, with special attention to the artist’s graphic work.
