Spiegel Mirror. Monika Jäger and the Klingspor Museum

1 Octobre 2022 - 30 March 2023
Klingspor Museum Offenbach

Starting from the drawing or her own text, the artist Monika Jäger (*1987) combines her graphic work in her artist books, also on handmade paper, into compositions of words and images and creates her own cosmos in them. In her drawings and texts, Monika Jäger is a detailed observer of her environment. In the movement of the pen on paper, she examines nature and culturally influenced spaces. In addition to a dedicated focus on form, she explores the interpersonal behavior of her residents among themselves, reflects it in an individual way and offers positions on it. In the exhibition “Spiegel Mirror. Monika Jäger and the Klingspor Museum”, the museum collection enters into a dialogue with the artist's works. Monika Jäger did her doctorate on the artistic work of ‹usus› (Uta Schneider and Ulrike Stoltz) and also dealt with various works from the collection of the Klingspor Museum. At the same time, the work “Zettelkasten”, which consists of around 416 colorful and eloquent index cards, has been in production since 2018. This bundle combines the components of art and science in form and content as well as the works of the artists Uta Schneider and Ulrike Stoltz and the collection of the Klingspor Museum with Monika Jäger's own artistic signature.
