One of the most influential and compelling artists working in Germany today, Cologne-based artist Cosima von Bonin (b. 1962, Mombasa, Kenya) has, over the last 15 years, worked in a wide range of mediaincluding sculpture, photography, textile paintings, installation, performance, film, video, and musicoften combined together in large-scale installations. Drawing freely from a broad range of sourcessuch as the work of other artists, popular and vernacular culture, television, fashion, and Hip-Hop and Techno musicher art explores these different forms of cultural expression in an open, fluid approach that embraces both relationships and contradictions. Von Bonin constructs a community of social relations in her artwork using role-playing, collaboration, appropriation, and the transformation of the commonplace. Her works touch upon ideas of play and indoctrination, structure and improvisation, cultural and gender representations, identity, and self-reflectionwith both absurdity and humor.
This book was produced to accompany an exhibition (09.16.07 – 01.07.08) organized by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, and curated by MOCA Senior Curator Ann Goldstein – the artists first solo museum exhibition in the United States.
