Winner of the Baloise Art Prize 2006.
Keren Cytter's drawings in our collection are in concept closely related to her video art. In her graphic works Keren Cytter samples image motifs that she has taken from the mass media (film, television, print media, advertising, the Internet, etc.). The masterly execution and combination of these often redundant motifs serves as a vehicle for Keren Cytter’s oddball humour, but also her feeling for ambiguity, mysteriousness and the grotesque.
Cytter is best known for her textually based video art. Through the development and execution of Cytter's unique style, she has found herself a niche in the art world which has brought her more and more critical attention and made her one of the most renowned artists of her generation.
