add to cartRequest
"Dialogue with artists is my passion," says photographer Angelika Platen. Under the title My Women, she gathers portraits of more than 100 female artists from five decades. Swantje Karich talks about the time, Julia Voss interviews the portraitist. For half a century, Angelika Platen has been portraying female artists, predominantly in black and white, including Georg Baselitz, Josef Beuys, Gerhard Richter, Hanne Darboven, Bridget Riley, Marina Abramović, Katharina Grosse, and Andy Warhol. In her third monograph, My Women, she now brings together for the first time the female art scene in an art world that continues to be dominated by men. In her unmistakable character images, which are part of her portrait series Platen Artists - taken in studios and galleries, in congruence of image and work - the photo artist devotes herself this time exclusively to women in the visual arts. Here she presents a photographic panorama of over 100 women artists in exciting diversity. With portraits by: Marina Abramovic, Monica Bonvicini, Sophie Calle, Hanne Darboven, Cecilia Edefalk, Isa Genzken, Asta Gröting, Candida Höfer, Roni Horn, Leiko Ikemura, Joan Jonas, Herlinde Koelbl, Marlena Kudlicka, Annie Leibovitz, Julie Mehretu, Anette Messager, Marzia Migliora, Katharina and Pola Sieverding, Rosemarie Trockel, Jorinde Voigt and others ...
