Kruger's oeuvre hinges on the malleability of language, and how
removing it from its everyday context can weaponize it. ... Her
work has shifted focus from feminist ideology.--Brehmer Brehmer
With the 33 works made over four decades, audiences will see that she goes well beyond clever graphics, also using sound installations and videos for her sharp takes on culture and society.--Ted Loos "New York Times: Arts"
Bold and convincing, occasionally overblunt and occasionally mischievous. Part backward looking and part revision and update for the constantly moving present, it embodies and thickens Kruger's refracting of the language of advertising and propaganda through an anticapitalist, humanist lens.--Jon Caramanica "New York Times"
A new book, 'Barbara Kruger: Thinking of You. I Mean Me. I Mean You', gathers together this seminal artist's vast body of work. From the analogue paste-ups of the 1980s to her digital works of the last two decades, the anthology traces Kruger's evolving practice, taking in the groundbreaking artist's many site-specific installations, works on vinyl, and multichannel videos, among many other mediums.--Emily Dinsdale "Dazed"
Traces her forever evolving practice, revealing how she has adapted her work to suit the moment, site and context. [...] In these trying times, the book reminds us that Kruger's pictures and words remain as important as ever, shining a light on current affairs, cultural shifts, and the powers that be in a rapidly changing world.--Katy Cowan "Creative Boom"
