Dorothy Iannone
The Story Of Bern + The (Ta)Rot Pack

Past: June 3 → July 10, 2016

Since the early 1960s, Dorothy Iannone (born in 1933 in Boston; lives and works in Berlin) has stood out for her feminist, politically incorrect body of work. A multiform corpus that includes paintings, drawings, collages, sculptures, videos and artist’s books, her art mixes literature, mythology, and autobiography in a colorful style whose influences range from popular art to Byzantine mosaic to erotic miniatures.

CCS is pleased to present all 70 drawings making up The Story Of Bern (1970), an illustrated narrative on the censorship the artist was subjected to during the Freunde group show held at Bern’s Kunsthalle; and a facsimile of The (Ta)Rot Pack (1968-69 / 2016), the deck of tarot cards that allude to her relationship with Dieter Roth.
