Biography

Barbara Beisinghoff is a prize-winning German graphic artist. She was awarded the Georg-Christoph-Lichtenberg Prize in 1988, in 1990 the Hameln-Pyrmont Art Prize, in 1991 the International Senefelder Prize, in 1997 the Dreieich Culture Prize, in 1999 the Heitland Foundation Prize and in 2002 the Mainz Town Printer Prize. In 2018 her work was included into the exhibition Paper/Print, American Hand Papermaking 1960s to Today in the International Print Center New York.

 

Barbara Beisinghoff held workshops in art academies in Peru in 2008 and worked 2016 with students in Vassar College, New York, as Artist across Disciplines, creating PoeTree and an Enchanted Forest. Her socially inclusive communicative art projects span from temporary installations to permanent public art in China, where her Canopies on Mount Lushan and in Dunjangyan bring star constellations and history into the light of the day. She gave printmaking artists from all over the world the possibility to work in her own etching studio.

 

Barbara Beisinghoff creates etchings and artist books. By her work with flexible watermark screens and drawing waterjet pictures into the wet paper, she gives light a form. The materiality of the paper that begs to be touched encourages the viewers to engage all their senses. Her work plays with the double meaning of the German verb begreifen, which can mean both, to touch and to grasp/understand. Her drawings and artifacts bring different media, genres and art forms into a dialogue between word and image, many of which can only be seen when light touches and pervades the paper, and they undermine narrow definitions of a picture.
