NEW ONLINE (Article in Berlin Art Link):
Article by Ngan Le, "The Secret of Art in Life: Barbara Rosenthal's
Surreality in Berlin" published in Berlin Art Link, March 2013
Born and still living most of the year in New York, Barbara Rosenthal
is a Media and Performance artist and writer who produces
idiosyncratic combinations of words, communicative sounds, gestures,
and pictures. Her artist's books of fiction, commentary, and
photography are in the collections of MoMA, Whitney, Tate, and Berlin
Kunstbibliotek. She has made over 100 photography, text, and
performance-based video shorts. In 2009 and 2010, she represented the
the United States in Performance Art and Text-Based Art at Tina B:
Prague Contemporary Art Festival. She began working in Performance/
Installation in 1968, and Photography/Video in 1976. She has kept a
Journal since childhood, and often combines writing with her imagery.
Her themes of identity, existentialism, and surrealism explore the
relationship between an artist's psyche and the outer world.
