By Sabine Breitwieser, Shannon Jackson, Sven Lutticken and Andrea Fraser
Published in conjuction with the exhibition Andrea Fraser at the Museum der Moderne, Salzburg.
Controversial, provocative and poignantly humorous, American artist Andrea Fraser (born 1965) is one of the most influential and pioneering figures of her generation and has been captivating a devoted audience for more than 30 years. She employs a wide range of media, including prints, photographs, installations and performances as well as texts and videos, time and again reformulating the same fundamental questions: what do we want from art, how do we view it and how does the art market distribute it?
