The artist Silke Wagner is considered one of the most substantial representatives of her generation; her work is highly influential. Wagner’s artistic interventions move beyond traditional artistic media and fields of action. With her works, she mobilizes publicity and creates potential for communication and new spaces for action. Collaborations with “kein mensch ist illegal” or anti-racist groups involve the artist in social movements and confront her with socially relevant issues such as the construction of the Other in the course of Europeanization. This book is the first comprehensive monograph on Wagner.

With texts by Marius Babias, Brigitte Franzen, Hagen Kopp, Silke Wagner, Florian Waldvogel, et al.
