Dorothy Iannone is best known for her vibrant and energetic paintings, drawings, prints, videos and objects depicting female and male figures in situations of physical union and ecstasy, which she has been creating since the 1960s. In Iannone’s world there are no rules, no boundaries and no sense of time. With her constant struggle for freedom and her challenges to contemporary culture and censorship, Iannone offers us a vision of female sexuality that is not oppressed or exploited, but radiantly alive.
The edition is published on the occasion of her exhibition The Köln Concert together with Juliette Blightman at the Kölnischer Kunstverein (31.10.2020 – 31.1.2021)
