Birgit Jürgenssen. Io sono.

GAMeC Bergamo

On 7 March, the opening of the first major retrospective in Italy of the work of Birgit Jürgenssen (Vienna, 1949–2003) will be held.

The wide-ranging oeuvre of Birgit Jürgenssen reflects on and deconstructs stereotypical relationships, sexuality, socially determined notions of beauty and gender relations, all with subversive humour as if they were deeper layers of her own identity.
The show, curated by Natascha Burger and Nicole Fritz and staged in collaboration with the Estate Birgit Jürgenssen, the Kunsthalle Tübingen and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, offers an overview of the entire oeuvre of the Austrian artist: more than 150 works produced over 40 years of research, including her drawings, collages, sculptures, photographs, rayogrammes, gouaches and cyanotypes. mehr

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue, published by Prestel, with texts by Natascha Burger, Nicole Fritz, Maurizio Cattelan, Lorenzo Giusti, Jessica Morgan, Gabriele Schor, Jasper Sharp, Abigail Solomon-Godeau.
