This comprehensive oeuvre catalog (1999-2011) documents for the first time the broad oeuvre of the artist. In addition to text-based works and photographs, Laura Horelli in particular uses video as a medium, sometimes also in multi-channel video installations. In her research she focuses on communicative processes and their media, political and social requirements in the globalized world. Horelli’s conceptual objective is to approach “reality” in a subjective way, in order to excerpt urban environments, events and relationships from her past and current residences from their original contexts and to link them in a new way. This creates an intertext, which connects the different courses of time as well as their subtexts, and at the same time undermines the documentary-representative.

With a welcoming speech by Klaus Wowereit, a preface by Marius Babias, Kathrin Becker, Sophie Goltz, and texts by Maeve Connolly and Dieter Roelstraete.

The book was published on the occasion of the exhibition
