The internationally acclaimed artist Dayanita Singh often describes herself as a “book artist.” Singh was closely involved in the making of this exhibition catalogue, which accompanies the major touring retrospective of Singh’s work, curated by Stephanie Rosenthal for the Gropius-Bau. The most comprehensive publication to date about Singh’s art, it includes a series of scholarly long-form and short-form essays, full-color reproductions, and installation images. The texts situate Singh’s work in relation to topics such as Indian classical music, traditions of the photographic, imaginations of the archive, choreography and economies of reproduction. Presenting every important phase in the artist’s oeuvre, it also enters Singh’s archive to include never-before-seen early works from the 1980s, a new series of montages and the works Let’s see, Museum of Chance, Museum of Shedding, I am as I am, Go Away Closer and Box 507, among others.

DAYANITA SINGH (*1961) is one of the most important contemporary artists. Solo exhibitions include: MMK, Frankfurt; Hayward Gallery, London; Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin; and Art Institute of Chicago. In 2013, Singh contributed to the German Pavilion at the 55th Venice Biennale.
