PoMo studies

As I begin to finish up my last essay, I allow myself a little break. Are heading to town to meet two close friends, first of all Amela, who is home from London where she studies architecture. Nastassja, as I wrote about just recently, is coming too. We don’t have time to meet up all three of us that often, so this is a big moment. To catch up before Christmas, before Amela goes back and I move away from Europe.

The post-modern artist I picked to write about is Barbara Kruger, who produced the famous I shop therefore I am. But I did not choose that one.  Mine is below, and I must say Ms Kruger is surprisingly fascinating. Much of her text questions about feminism, classicism, consumerism, and individual desire. I like her!

Barbara Kruger’s graphic work usually consists of black-and-white photographs with overlaid captions set in white-on-red Futura Bold Oblique. I think you have seen it. I love the quote by her “I just say I’m an artist who works with pictures and words“.

  1. Kruger at least seem to be true with her self. many of us deny that we have a desire to consume. I know I often hear my self saying that I try to not buy things I don’t need. but sometimes that’s just the best thing I know! last week I bought a new ski-outfit… what do you think; ithttp://products.norrona.com/webshop/tradepoint/b2c/ItemView.aspx?ID=5410-10%201190
    even if I had clothes to ski in that work, I keep telling my self I really needed new, solid ones. and I’m totally a snob for adventure clothing. I can always argue that I really need the equipment. /N
