Review - Barbara Kruger

I have a review of Barbara Kruger's exhibition at Modern Art Oxford  published today in the Church Times.

In the review I explore how Kruger's work leads naturally into reflections on the nature of belief. The words BELIEVERS, DOUBTERS, AIRHEADS are at the very centre of her main installation while an earlier Kruger installation contained the equation BELIEF + DOUBT = SANITY. Kruger’s work refuses cheap solutions to that balance and the question of our own identity. 

I also refer to work by Rose Finn-Kelcey and Caroline Richardson which can be viewed here and here.
