Ana Mendieta is one of the outstanding artists of the 1970s and 1980s. The exhibition Covered in Time and History: The Films of Ana Mendieta at the Gropius Bau will feature 23 of Mendieta's multi-layered film works, which after several years of research have been restored and digitised.

About

Ana Mendieta’s  (1948-1985) work moves freely between the disciplines of body art, land art and performance art, without being bound to a particular medium or single movement. The connecting element across her practice is the recurring use of the abstracted shape of the female form, often in dialogue with the natural world, in order to question the supposed separation between the body and nature. Her work transcends numerous boundaries, from those of geographical and political space, to the delineations of history, gender and culture.

An exhibition in cooperation with the Katherine E. Nash Gallery at the University of Minnesota, curated by Lynn Lukkas and Howard Oransky.
