11 Apr. – 14 Jun. 2008
As a feminist and activist, Andrea Bowers‘ work addresses contemporary political issues such as immigration,
environmental activism and feminism. She combines aesthetic practice with a political stance in sculptures, films,
multimedia objects and documentary works. Mostly this involves a feminist, social and ecological perspective.
Bowers pursues work that is informed by historical consciousness, that addresses our times and at the same
time the history of political activism and visual languages. Her work reveals the issues of the past years, the
developments about ecology, environmental and climate protection. The sense of isolation and vulnerability in her
motifs is particularly strong. In 2021 she had solo-shows at the Hammer Museum in L.A. and the MCA in
Chicago. Andrea Bowers had her first solo-show at VAN HORN in 2005.
