Mona Hatoum (* 1952 Lebanon, Palestinian origin; lives in London and Berlin) is one of the most important contemporary artists. Since 2002, Universes in Universe has informed about her work in several articles and visual tours through exhibitions. This special feature offers a direct access to this extensive material, which also includes some artworks that are hard to find documented elsewhere, such as Hatoum's interventions in the historical collection of Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice in 2009.
"Central to Hatoum’s oeuvre is the elemental human psyche that she elucidates with precision and an economy of material and form that is the hallmark of minimalism and conceptual art. Her exhibitions are permeated with the tension of oppositional emotive experiences--desire and revulsion, safety and fear, security and threat—thereby creating ‘states of being’ within which the viewer is at once implicated and challenged." (Salwa Mikdadi)
