Dagmar Richter: The Art of Copy: Rereading the City
Saturday December 5, 1992 – Friday January 15, 1993
The Art of Copy, an exhibition by Los Angeles-based architect Dagmar Richter, was an exploration for alternative readings of cultural and urban patterns. Using the extreme conditions of cities—the fragmentation of Los Angeles, the staticism of Berlin and the destruction of Beirut—her work introduced horizontal interconnections, imploding boundaries and attempting to stitch environmental wounds. Richter’s intent was to mediate conflicts between urban and cultural realities, and to delineate a feminist language in architectural form and urban practice.
