Leipzig-based artist Christiane Baumgartner is best known for her monumental woodcuts, hand-carved prints that literally and conceptually expand the traditional boundaries of the medium beyond expectation. Working at the intersection of old and new media to expand the conceptual and technical capacities of printmaking, Baumgartner sources images from movies and television as well as from her own photographs and home videos. Often massive in scale, or undertaken in large series, her work grapples with questions of human sight and its elusive capture, speed and transmission, and cultural memory and representation.

With essays contextualizing her work in relation to the Leipzig school and the German printmaking tradition as well as an interview with the artist surveying her practice, Another Country offers an in-depth introduction to the artist’s work.
