American conceptual artist Barbara Kruger is known for her combination of type and image that conveys a direct feminist cultural critique. Her work addresses cultural constructions of power, identity, consumerism, and sexuality with text layered over mass-media images. Kruger’s strong visual language and striking words have transformed and influenced generations of graphic designers and artists and continues to remain prominent in popular culture.
Love for Sale: The Words and Pictures of Barbara Kruger is one of the best books to have been published on her work. As the most complete overview to date of an important artist and a fascinating addition to the debate on censorship in the arts, this survey includes her most famous pieces and discusses the ways in which her art challenges social values and the nature of art-making, using images appropriated from various sources to capture attention.
