Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos is famous internationally for her three-dimensional works in which she explores the boundaries between tradition and modernism, high and everyday culture, craftsmanship and industrial production in works rich in allusions. In her art—which largely consists of monumental works—Vasconcelos links different materials, fabrics, and items in daily use to create an unconventional form of surreal object art. Her works treat questions of cultural identity and gender dimensions and show points of contact with artistic strategies that also inspired Max Ernst and the Surrealists.

This richly illustrated volume accompanies Vasconcelos’s first museum exhibition in Germany. It presents early and current works in combination with installation views and provides an in-depth insight into her unusual working methods.
