Edited by Michael Buhrs, Yara Sonseca Mas. Texts by Manuel Cirauqui, Yara Sonseca Mas. A conversation between Amie Siegel and Michael Taussig
Known for her layered, meticulously constructed works that trace and perform the undercurrents of systems of value, image-making and methods of observation, Amie Siegel’s work moves between film, video, photography, performance and installation. Published on the occasion of the first large-scale exhibition of the American artist at Museum Villa Stuck, Munich, “Double Negative” is part of the museum’s RICOCHET series, which establishes a dialogue between the works of contemporary artists and the historical spaces of the Villa Stuck, and gives insight into the last decade of Siegel’s practice. The publication, as the exhibition, establishes correspondences between seven of the artist’s works since 2005 and including a newly commissioned film installation that gives the exhibition its title.
