Geta Bratescu (b. Ploieti, 1926; d. Bucharest, 2018) is now widely regarded as one of Eastern Europe’s most important avant-gardists. In the Western art world, however, she was largely obscure until her participation in documenta 14 in 2017 and the Biennale di Venezia of the same year. Questions of abstraction, the political potential of the image, and the subjective experience of self, memory, and history inform her stylistically diverse oeuvre in a wide range of media, which evolved under the repressive conditions of the Ceau?escu regime yet kept pace with the discourses of the Western avant-gardes. This richly illustrated volume focuses on her collages and drawings as well as her works on film and video from the late 1970s until her death. With contributions by Geta Bratescu, Pernille Fonnesbech, Ion Grigorescu, Marian Ivan, Albert Kriemler, Stefan Sava, Roland Wäspe and Lorenz Wiederkehr.
