LASSNIG, Maria; OBRIST, Hans Ulrich
Maria Lassnig. Briefe an / Letter to Hans Ulrich Obrist

The microworld of the millions of neurons in the brain can, of course, be photographed but not their functions. Painting, however, can.”
—Maria Lassnig

Lassnig and HUO had an amicable exchange lasting twenty years, where they discussed art, literature and their exhibition and book projects together. Published for the first time here, handwritten letters from Maria Lassnig provide an insight into her reflections on art and her existence as an artist, into their heights, depths and intricacies. Maria Lassnig allowed her addressee not only to partake in her thoughts on painting or polemics on photography, but also in her everyday life between the urban art world and her remote studio in the countryside. Including numerous images of the works of Maria Lassnig, letters and postcards. [which are really nice, yep, with drawings, photographs, etc.] [publisher’s note]
