This new publication from the Swiss art theorist Peter Stohler
unites solo and group interviews with five women artists, who for
various reasons no longer live and work in their native countries.
With questions relating to the importance of their origins, their
migrant status, their role as women working in art and the effect
of their (in some cases traditional) training in art on their work,
Peter Stohler proceeds like 'tomography', exposing section by
section layers, which - viewed as a whole - reveal what is special
about each artist's work as well as the links between them. Peter
Stohler has discovered what they all have in common: a refusal to
be distracted by the trend towards working on an individual oeuvre,
an approach which might, in the positive sense of the term, be
called 'anachronistic' in the context of the contemporary art
scene. Photographs by Judith Schonenberger (b. 1977 in Zurich,
lives in Bern), who took them during the interviews, complete the
book. Interviewed artists: Katja Loher (Video, b. 1978 in
Schaffhausen, CH, lives in New York), Joulia Strauss (Conceptual
artist, b. 1974 in St Petersburg, lives in Berlin), Jung-Yeun Jang
(painter, b. 1968 in Seoul, lives in Basel), Nicole Ottiger
(painting/drawing, b. 1968 in Cliftonville, UK, lives in Lucerne
and Zurich), and Irina Polin (photography, b. 1975 in Moscow, lives
