Artstor has collaborated with Rebecca Hackemann to release more than 200 images of her artwork in the Digital Library. The images in the Digital Library include both digital reproductions of two-dimensional works and documentation of her public sculptures and installations. Hackemann’s conceptually-oriented art challenges existing media categories and is primarily concerned with issues of perception, representation, and the intersection between language and image, as well as with the history of public space and urban planning in non-traditional locations.

This is the third release of a projected 7,000 images of art, exhibition installation views, and architecture from the Foundation.
Since its inception in 1937, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation has been a preeminent institution for the collection, preservation, and research of modern and contemporary art.

Guggenheim Museum, New York, was joined by the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice, has expanded since 1997 to include several other museums, most prominently the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. (more…)
