2000 Words is a series of monographs conceived by Massimilano Gioni, each of which combines a critical, forthright essay with a survey of an artist's works in the Dakis Joannou Collection. From the vantage of a single unique collection, these small volumes give insight into the work of some of the most exciting contemporary artists.
Spanning different media, alter egos, and collaborative pseudonyms, the work of Kerstin Brätsch enacts an investigation of abstraction and identity in the wake of our contemporary digital moment. In her work, the spiritual power assigned to abstraction is debunked, the splintered subjectivity of personal and corporate branding is exposed, and the legacy of these languages is challenged.
