Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster | Exhibition Catalogue
Artist, director and producer, Dominique Gonzales-Foerster was born in 1965 in Strasbourg and is now working both in Paris and Rio de Janeiro. She has quickly gained worldwide recognition for her singular work and is now valued as a major artist of the contemporary scene. From September 23rd, 2015 to February 1st, 2016, the artist will stage a major retrospective at the Centre Pompidou.
Taking both from the collective memory and from literature or cinema, she brings up to date popular sources, thus creating time-related spaces that blur the lines between reality and fiction. Through her work, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster thus encourages spectators to explore their inner-self and make their own reading.

Designed in close collaboration with the artist herself, the book goes through this incredible odyssey.
