Born in Beirut in 1952 and now living between London and Berlin, Mona Hatoum questions body limits, be they human or social.
Her works are made out of organic and industrial materials such as pieces of hair, body fluids or wire netting. Electricity, magnetism, temperature, sound and video are all elements that can be added to her artworks to bring more efficiently the viewer into the center of the scene.
Enriched with articles by prominent specialists, this reference book sheds light on the work of this exceptional video and installation artist and provides keys for understanding.
