(in English with interpreter)
Judy Liebert talks about her work and among other things about
Baselitzs claim " ... that women
are the poorer artists."
(Spiegel interview 21.01.2013)
Judy Liebert (70) is a very versatile, engaged feminist and environmentally
conscious artist who asks the question "What is the purpose
of Art today?". She has, for example, together with her husband,
the architect Julian Marsh, transformed the site of a disused meat
factory in Nottingham into an award-winning low-energy house (winning
both architectural and environmental prizes). In 2011 she received
a prize worth £ 5,000 as Best First Time Exhibitor at the
Royal Academy London Summer Exhibition for her work ,Dreaming a
House ', integrally associated with the low-energy house project
the commendation reads:
"The artist stitched the
architectural drawings done by her husband, architect Julian Marsh,
of their new Nottingham house onto a bedcover. "
Judy Liebert often works with installations, her work is provocative
and narrative. In Karlsruhe she will show some of her 'Shock &
Awe' work, as well as a large work titled "Painting Baselitz's
Bottom"; the picture was painted in response to an interview
in one of the more serious German news magazines (Der Spiegel),
in which Georg Baselitz makes derogatory remarks about women artists
and reduces the assessment of their skills to the marketability
of their work.
