Hopf's multidisciplinary practice addresses the paradoxes and ridicule that spill form high-minded attitudes toward art making and the faith in technology
, and efficiency. This catalogue gathers a significant sampling of her works, as well as two essays and an interview.
Published on the occasion of her exhibition at Museion, Up presents a significant sampling of Judith Hopf's work. In her practice, Hopf has consistently addressed the paradoxes and ridicule that spill form high-minded attitudes toward art making and the faith in technology, professionalism, and efficiency. Her works drip humor and yet are at the same time serious and pensive. A long conversation with art historian Sabeth Buchmann, and two essays by curators Letizia Ragaglia and Roberto Pinto address the humanism of videos, sculptures and installations that are at once not effortless nor heavy.
Published following the eponymous exhibition at Museion, Bolzano, from October 1st, 2016, to January 8, 2017.
Born in 1969, Judith Hopf lives and works in Berlin.
