The starting point for all paintings in Jo Baer’s oeuvre was always drawing and collage. Later in the nineties, collages were made digitally, then printed out and drawn upon. The drawings of Jo Baer reveal in the most direct and intimate way the thought and creative processes of her practice of what she had entitled herself Radical Figuration.

The recent international recognition of the post minimalist oeuvre is closely linked to a new reading of the live-time achievements. The retrospective at Ludwig Museum in 2011 followed the curatorial thesis that there always has been an underlying continuation in Baer’s oeuvre, which can be traced by studying her drawing practice. Since then, Baer’s oeuvre used to be viewed as having a radical break after her minimalist period. Since then, the Radical Figuration paintings have entered high profile museum collections, such as the MOMA and the Whitney Museum.

The gallery show will be preceded by a solo presentation at the Feature Section in the upcoming ArtBasel.
