Published on the occasion of an exhibition of artwork by Valie Export (b. 1940), an Austrian artist perhaps best-known for her performance art and multimedia installations. She has worked with film, video, computer animation, photography, and sculpture. Many of her artworks have a feminist message and address discrimination against women in postwar Austria. Like many of her other works, the art depicted herein is about female body image and features a diversity of media such as computer-generated imagery, photography, prints, silk fabric, and mirrors. The exhibition was called _Lesen Durch Objekte_ (_Reading Through Objects_) and showed at Galerie Grita Insam in Vienna from 1990-1991. Bilingual essay by Florian Rotzer in German and English included. Heavy and oversized items may require additional shipping.
