Texts by Nick Aikens, Fanni Fetzer, and Bettina Schmitt, and a conversation between Laure Prouvost, Anna Goetz and Barbara Steveni
Laure Prouvost’s art is full of wit, poetry, humor, stories, and unforeseen twists and turns. Whether in her installations, videos, or performances, she never fails to surprise and attract. Are her stories for real? Was her granddad really a conceptual artist who dug a tunnel from Europe to Africa and literally got lost in the artistic process? Prouvost’s ways of working and the visual style of her output really only come to life and develop their full intensity in her exhibitions—until now. Together with Kunstmuseum Luzern and the Museum für Moderne Kunst in Frankfurt, Mousse has published the first-ever monograph on Prouvost. Like her art, the book is fast-paced and full of quick turns and surprises; it is no easy task to achieve a true representation of video art in a printed volume. Important authors who have worked closely with Prouvost write about her here for the first time, and the artist herself discusses her life and work with her artistic role model Barbara Steveni. The book also includes a complete list of Prouvost’s works and exhibitions. Is Prouvost really the “holy liar” she’s been called in the press? Find out for yourself...
