Berlin-based artist Monika Baer (born 1964) approaches the picture as "a site of staging or performance.” Figurative elements such as keyholes, coins and slices of meat act as agents within the staged space of the image, while defying organization as a coherent narrative. Baer’s paintings and drawings evoke desires and afflictions and convey the visceral pleasure and pain of their own making. This volume, accompanying the first US museum exhibition of the artist’s paintings and drawings, includes works created between 1990 and 2013.
