Jacqueline Hassink
The Power Book
HC 26,5 x 34,5 cm.
Boot 2007

Jacqueline Hassink is a Dutch-born conceptual artist, originally trained as a sculptor. She first picked up a camera in 1994, beginning successive series of photographs dealing methodically and precisely with the themes of globalisation and economic power. Her series include "The Table of Power" (1993-95), for which she photographed the boardroom tables of Europe's 40 largest multinationals, "Female Power Stations: Queen Bees" (1996-2000) about the business and domestic environments of the world's leading women executives, and "Car Girls" (2002-07) about the manifestations of power in the world of the global car fairs.

The Power Book, the first survey of Hassink's photography, takes the form of a travelogue ? the best of her photographs from America, Europe, the Middle East and Japan are presented chronologically along with illuminating diary notes and sketches ? and is published to accompany her major exhibition "The Power Show" (opening in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and New York before touring internationally). Jacqueline Hassink's photographs have been widely exhibited throughout Europe, Asia and America. She lives in New York.

Eine schöne Dreingabe bei diesem Buch ist der Abdruck der Moleskin Notizbücher, mit denen Jacqueline Hassink ihre Serien plant, begleitet und konzeptuell "anspitzt".
