GRIT: GRIT HACHMEISTER. Spector Books, Leipzig, 2015. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 180 pp. with 145 ills. (113 col.) and one folded, color poster. 30 x 21 cm. ISBN 9783959050012 Bilingual in English and German.
Publisher's description: Berlin-based artist Grit Hachmeister (b. 1979, Leipzig) presents 48 self-portraits, multiple drawings, collaged visual narratives and staged photographs she has produced over the past 10 years in this extensive and revealing monograph. Her sometimes humorous, gender-critical work employs sexual and figurative imagery to provoke and question how women portray and "market" themselves. Motifs from childhood often tied together by a warped, abstract treatment of the figure collide uncomfortably with adult themes. Featured are three essay/interviews by the artist exploring her process and underlying concerns in making the work along with her freestyle writing that accompanies a selection of drawings and a foldout poster. Hachmeister studied photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Leipzig and is part of a "second wave" of the Leipzig School. She received a Pollack-Krasner Foundation Grant in 2014 and had her most recent solo exhibition at the ASPN Gallery in Leipzig (2015).
