Mary Bauermeister

Worlds in a Box

The Cologne artist Mary Bauermeister made her mark on the New York art market in the middle of the 1960s. Her “lens boxes” – wooden boxes, open at the front, containing several visual layers made of glass, with lenses and prisms arranged on top – fascinated curators and collectors. Every major New York museum purchased her work.
For the first time, in this catalogue, Bauermeister’s poetic, enigmatic and intriguing works are presented against the background of the experimental art of the 1960s, illustrating formal and content-related connections to contemporary groups like ZERO, Fluxus and Nouveau Réalisme.
