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.
