Rebecca Hackemann

Artstor has collaborated with Rebecca Hackemann to release more than 200 images of her artwork in the Digital Library. The images in the Digital Library include both digital reproductions of two-dimensional works and documentation of her public sculptures and installations. Hackemann’s conceptually-oriented art challenges existing media categories and is primarily concerned with issues of perception, representation, and the intersection between language and image, as well as with the history of public space and urban planning in non-traditional locations.

Rebecca Hackemann is a British/German conceptual artist who works in many media that are concerned with perception and space. She was born, raised and educated in Germany, England, and America. Her art has been exhibited at Hunter College Times Square Galleries (2010), FIT New York (2009), The Whitney Museum ISP, Gigantic Artspace New York, Marcia Wood Gallery in Atlanta (2007) and at the 5th Biennial of Contemporary Art in Novosibirsk, Siberia (2007).
