Photographs by Cindy Sherman. Text and essay by Maik Schluter.
64 pp., 19 color illustrations, 9½x11½".
At the end of the 1990's, a prominent art magazine chose Cindy Sherman as one of the twenty-five most influential artists of the twentieth century, and today this view is more justified than ever. For a quarter of a century, Cindy Sherman (born in 1954) has astonished the art world with her 'role portraits,' where she herself serves as director, photographer, and main actress. After the 'Untitled Film Stills,' the horror visions and sex pictures, the 'History Portraits' and fashion photographs, all which can also be found in Schirmer/Mosel Books, she now shows in her most recent series that the subject is as limitless as her creativity. 'I came to clowns,' the artists says, 'to show the complex emotional abysses of a painted smile.'
This volume, which presents the entire series of eighteen color photographs, accompanies the exhibition of Cindy Sherman's 'Clowns' at the kestnergesellschaft in Hanover, Germany.
