Created in close association with the artist herself to accompany our display at Tate Modern, this book examines the full career of Hungarian artist Dóra Maurer.

From her early graphic works, photographs and films, to her ‘displacement’ canvases and most recent large-scale paintings which explore how geometric forms are affected by colour and colour perception, this exhibition catalogue reveals Maurer’s persistent experimentation with production processes and her innovative take on traditional techniques.

The show introduces aspects of Maurer’s early practice including graphic works, serial photographic works and structural films from the 1970s and 1980s. Maurer trained in graphic techniques, and in her graphic works she often examines the movement of markings left by different materials and production processes. Her works all share a preoccupation with structure, relativity of perception and exploration of the medium’s limits.
