Claudia Wieser’s artistic practice draws from history, architecture, and design, often playing with time and space. Influenced by artists who embraced spirituality—such as Hilma af Klint, Wassily Kandinsky, and Paul Klee—she considers abstraction and physiological experience in her installations. The Berlin-based artist’s practice includes hand-painted ceramics, carved wooden sculptures, tiled mirrored works, drawings, and site-specific wallpaper with images mined from her vast archive.
Claudia Wieser: Generations highlights her first solo exhibition in the United States held at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts and the Smart Museum of Art. Alongside images of her work, this publication features essays by curators Rachel Adams and Jennifer Carty and three interviews conducted by Maggie Taft, Igor Siddiqui, and Angelik Vizcarrondo-Laboy.
