Barbis Ruder: 10 years of performance art
The works of the performance and media artist Barbis Ruder focus on the body – it is both the starting point and the main object of investigation in her work. In her performances and multimedia work, Ruder explores themes such as economy, work, intimacy, and convention. The body appears as a moving image, in sculptures, installations, and on stage.
This book presents Barbis Ruder’s entire oeuvre for the first time and reveals the complexity of her work. In different cycles of work, the body is repeatedly reinterpreted and recreated, exploring the tension between emancipation and capitalism.
This extensive presentation brings together trashy stage performances and sculptural works as well as video work and provides insights into the artist’s development process through drawings and studies.
Madeleine Frey, Director of the Max Ernst Museum Brühl des LVR
