For half a century, Angelika Platen has been photographing mainly black and white portraits of artists, including Georg Baselitz, Josef Beuys, Hanne Darboven, Bridget Riley, Marina Abramovi?, Katharina Grosse, and Andy Warhol. Platen’s third monograph, Meine Frauen (My Women), is the first to gather together the female art scene (in an art world still dominated by men). With her unmistakable character studies as part of her photo series, Platen Artists-taken in studios and galleries-and in a congruence of image and work, the artist devotes herself this time exclusively to female visual artists. Here, she shows an exciting, varied, photographic panorama of over one hundred female artists.
