With her 1987 video-sculpture Les Larmes d'acier (Steel Tears), the Belgian artist Marie-Jo Lafontaine created a work for documenta in Kassel that is still considered a breakthrough, and not just for the artist but also for the medium of video installation in general. This book considers all of Lafontaine's work over the last fifteen years, and thus is the first and most comprehensive book on the one European video artist who has mastered this field with incomparable virtuosity. This first comprehensive monograph covers all aspects of Lafontaine's work over the last fifteen years: video sculptures, installations, and photoworks with monochrome painting and text. Carefully selected visual material and essays, as well as quotations from writers and philosophers come together to create a compelling portrait of this artist.
