Field Editions is pleased to present an opportunity to acquire a
Karen Knorr print. All proceeds from sale of this edition go to Redeye, the Photography Network, Manchester, in support of the next generation of photography talent.
German born Karen Knorr was raised in Puerto Rico in the 1960s and studied at the University of Westminster in the 1970s. Her early work addressed debates regarding cultural studies and film theory, progressing to work about the British class-system under Margaret Thatcher and acclaimed works such as Gentlemen (1981 – 1983) which was a study of patriarchal conservative British values during the Falklands war. Her critical, yet playful style of documentary photography explores subjects ranging from the family, lifestyle, or animals and their place in the context of the museum. The works donated to Field Editions are from the India Song and Metamorphosis series produced following a life-changing journey to Rajasthan, India in 2008.
Recent solo shows include: Karen Knorr: British Style 1970-80s, at Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow Russia (2016); Karen Knorr, BP Spotlight Gentlemen and Belgravia, at Tate Britain, London (2015) and Karen Knorr, at James Danziger Gallery, New York (2014).
Select group shows include In Spring,It Is Dawn That Is The Most Beautiful, at White Conduit Projects, London; The Unbearable Lightness: The 1980s, at Centre Pompidou, Paris France ; Youth Codes, at Materia Gallery, Rome Italy; and The Family of the Invisible, at Collections du Centre National des Arts Pastiques, Seoul Museum of Art, South Korea,(2016).
Karen has taught, exhibited and lectured internationally, including at Tate Britain, Tate Modern, The University of Westminster, Goldsmiths, Harvard and The Art Institute of Chicago. She is currently Professor of Photography at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey.
