Monika Sprüth Philomene Magers, Munich proudly present works of Astrid Klein. The exhibition, which covers works from the late 1970s and the 1980s, includes photographic, sculptural and installation work. Photography has played a key role in Astrid Klein's oeuvre since the mid 1970s. Her approach to photography differs from the traditional documentary use of the medium: Astrid Klein uses photographic material taken from film, TV, advertising and journalistic texts, which she manipulates. She inverts colours, layers images, adds fragments of texts to the images or overexposures them. Astrid Klein attempts to eliminate the viewers' possibility to recognize familiar images: in doing this, she questions their perception.
