Ruth Asawa: Citizen of the Universe
Focusing on a dynamic and formative period in Asawa’s career between 1945 and 1980, the book grants readers a unique insight into her life and work through a series of in-depth essays, extensive illustrations, archival images, letters and documents. While exploring her legacy from a European perspective, it does not shy away from the discrimination she faced as a Japanese American woman, countered by her self-identification as ‘a citizen of the universe’. Asawa’s revolutionary and inclusive vision of the role art should play in society is perhaps her most important legacy, serving as a potential catalyst for creative thinking in the 21st century.
