This comprehensive catalog is published on the occasion of the retrospective organized by the Hamburger Kunsthalle celebrating her 90th birthday, featuring important key works and work series spanning more than six decades. It is the first museum retrospective by the artist outside of her home country. Memory and history, historical deposition and organic growth processes, conformity and deviation, self-questioning and -assertion are among the issues that Geta Brătescu has repeatedly worked with and scrutinized in the course of her long artistic career. The work of this Bucharest artist is extremely diverse and varied in style. Geta Brătescu’s work is abstract and at other times representational, fragmented as well as three dimensional, and she makes use of different media such as drawing, photography, film, textile work and sculpture.
