A dialogue between the works of contemporary artist Amie Siegel and the historical spaces of the Villa Stuck in Munich (monographic catalogue).
Known for her layered, meticulously constructed works that trace and perform the undercurrents of systems of value, image-making and methods of observation, Amie Siegel's work moves between film, video, photography, performance and installation. Published on the occasion of the first large-scale exhibition of the American artist at Museum Villa Stuck, Munich, “Double Negative” is part of the museum's “Ricochet” series, which establishes a dialogue between the works of contemporary artists and the historical spaces of the Villa Stuck, and gives insight into the last decade of Siegel's practice. The publication, as the exhibition, establishes correspondences between seven of the artist's works since 2005 and including a newly commissioned film installation that gives the exhibition its title.
Published following the eponymous exhibition at Museum Villa Stuck, Munich, from March 12 to June 5, 2016.
