Sexuality, Violence, Fragility—Exploring What It Is to Be Human

Released on the occasion of Miriam Cahn’s solo exhibitions at The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery, Toronto, and Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, this publication gives a comprehensive overview of the acclaimed Swiss artist’s extensive and versatile body of work. Encompassing oil paintings and works on paper in chalk, charcoal, pastel, and watercolor as well as film, photography, and text, the catalogue elucidates the artist’s explorations that critically engage with themes such as women’s rights, identity, sexuality, and war. An uncompromising artist, Miriam Cahn has applied a feminist perspective throughout her career. Drawing on her own experiences and observations, as well as on the connecting lines between the diverse works from the past 25 years, the publication forms a cohesive statement—a reference to the performance art of the 1960s and 1970s centered on the artist’s own body: ME AS HAPPENING.

MIRIAM CAHN (*1949, Basel) is considered one of the most acclaimed contemporary artists. For over four decades, she has been creating work based on an uncompromising resistance to discrimination in all forms. Influenced by performance art and the feminist movement of the 1960s and 1970s, her rich oeuvre includes painting, works on paper, performance, text and film. She lives and works in Stampa, Switzerland.
