About the product

Over the last 15 years, artist Rosa Barba (born 1972) has created a conceptual work of poetic density with her films, sculptures and printed editions. Her work, often based on historical or site – specific research, revolves around basic questions such as the medial nature of time and memory, and the interaction of form and artistic content. Barba focuses on film: as a medium, material and metaphor, as a narrative form and characteristic foil for the visual culture of the 20th century.

Her sculptural objects and spatial interventions both examine cinematic aspects and move in a field between material and immaterial presence. Rosa Barba’s cinematic - sculptural oeuvre has been presented internationally in numerous solo and group exhibitions in recent years. For the Rotunda of the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt, the Berlin – based artist has devised a new work titled “Blind Volumes” responding to the specific conditions of this freely accessible public area.
