JUTTA KOETHER
JUTTA KOETHER

Born 1958 in Cologne, Germany, Jutta Koether is a painter, performer, and critic living in New York. Her dedication to working across these mediums is often pushed to extremes, where characteristics typically associated with a particular form: ???abstraction??? (painting), ???manifesto??? (writing), ???noise??? (music), ???stage-setting??? (performance), are wildly redeployed and made to address other mediums, often with dissonant and affronting results. Her performances are harsh, minimal, and ecstatic; in her own words: ???a painting of the real??? or ???the structural necessity of multiple inconsistent fantasies laid out in a continuous sound recital for and within.??? Recent shows in New York include Fresh Aufhebung, at Reena Spaulings Fine Arts (2004), and I Is Had Gone, at Thomas Erben Gallery (2005), she has also shown in Philadelphia, Vienna and Cologne. Koether has published artist??ôs books since the 1990s and is a graduate of the Whitney Independent Study Program.
