Geta Brătescu: Atelierul/The studio
Library Shelf Location 18.BRAT
Publication Date 2013

The book is dedicated to Romanian artist Geta Bratescu, one of the most remarkable personalities of the Eastern European postwar avant-garde. The main part of the publication comprises visual materials and texts written by the artist that span several decades of her activity, outlining the exceptional manner in which she has appropriated the lesson of modernism and interrelated it with conceptual challenges. Bratescu focuses on the artistic process, advancing a multidisciplinary approach by using various media: film, happening, tapestry, engraving, collage, objects, and text. The book comes as a result of long-term research conducted in the artist's archive. It contains theoretical contributions that track the multilayered dialectics of Bratescu's work: from the remarkable conceptualization of the act of drawing to the crucial role advocated by the studio, from the preoccupation with self-representation and seriality to the subtle diffusion of theatricality in her work.
