A handsome book examining the full career of Hungarian artist Dora Maurer
Published to accompany a 2019 display at Tate Modern, this book examines the full career of Hungarian artist Dora Maurer (b.1937), spanning over four decades of her experimental practice from the 1970s to the present. From her early graphic works, photographs and films, to her `displacement' canvases and most recent large-scale paintings which explore how geometric forms are affected by colour and colour perception, this publication reveals Maurer's experimentation with production processes and her innovative take on traditional techniques.
Maurer trained in graphic techniques, and in her graphic works, she often examines the movement of markings left by different materials and production processes. Her works, be they photographs, graphic work or films, share a preoccupation with structure, relativity of perception and exploration of the medium's limits. The book features an introductory overview by Tate curator Juliet Bingham and essays on Maurer's early works, the artist's film works and the artist's practice from the 1980s to the present day.
