Knaurs Lexikon Moderner Kunst
Book 355 pp , single channel video
Claudia de la Torre’s scissored Knaurs textbook renders visible the gaps in the modernist canon, the pictures forgotten or overlooked in the standard history of western art. These pictures speak loudly in their absence. Moreover, the cutouts create a tangible scrim—frames for missing pictures, perhaps, or an alternative history which invites the viewer to create new and compelling narratives.
