Published on the occasion of Andrea Büttner’s solo exhibitions The Heart of Relations at Kunstmuseum Basel and No Fear, No Shame, No Confusion at K21, Düsseldorf (both 2023), this new monograph offers the most comprehensive overview of the artist’s practice to date. Büttner combines art history with social and ethical issues. Since the early 2000s, she has been exploring a wide range of themes such as labour, poverty, shame and care in monastic forms of coexistence, but also arts and crafts as a political field. Examining the ambivalent tension between aesthetics and ethics, the internationally-renowned artist uses various conceptual methods. Best known for her large-scale woodcuts, Büttner has since used a variety of media, including etching, painting, photography and video installations, glass art and textiles. For her publications and exhibitions, Büttner composes her works thematically to create site-specific installations that can be experienced as gradually unfolding narratives.
