Catalogue Note

Rosa Barba is an artist who might work in a variety of media but whose work is invariably about one medium in particular: industrial cinema. Rather a distillation of the form than a structural analysis of its component parts that those filmmakers of the late 1960s or 1970s might have been investigating, her works are beguiling and elemental. Informed by a social and cultural research, the representation or her subjects are akin of construction of peculiar monuments represented in her films, sculptures, installations and publications. (Excerpt from 'Rosa Barba' by Ian White, Camera Austria 101, 2008)

Rosa Barba was resident artist at the Rijksakademie in 2003-2004.
She won the Uriôt Prize (NL) in 2003, the Special Award (HR) in 2004 and the HAP-Grieshaber-Preis (DE) in 2006.
