Publication Date 10 Feb 2020

Catrin Huber (*1968) works with architectural, fictional and imagined spaces as well as with site-responsive practices. Fascinated by ancient Roman wall painting, she developed site-specific installations in a topical dialogue with two Roman houses at the world-heritage sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii. This intricately designed book presents Huber's versatile spatial interventions, discusses the complex relation between her installations and their respective archaeological settings (local/temporal), and re-evaluates the daring concept of a historiographic turn within the arts.

Text in English, German and Italian.
