Alexandra Hopf is a Berlin-based artist from Germany. Hopf’s practice ranges from works on paper to acrylic glass, relief, sculpture, and textiles. She questions the constructions of art history by reimagining the avant-garde with her own idiosyncratic museological approach. By revisiting the œuvre of renowned artists of the avant-garde, Hopf underlines the prevalence of male figures in its narrative and investigates the creation of the myths surrounding them. Instead of constructing a linear history in the development of twentieth- and twenty-first-century art, her works provide points of departure for alternative narratives, which retraces the of vestiges of history through associative pictorial worlds. Hopf asks the same pertinent questions as the former avant-garde, but now addresses them now in a scenario of global economic crisis.
Hopf’s work has been shown internationally. With solo and group shows like The Model, Sligo, Ireland, Arp Museum, Remagen, Germany, Locust Projects, Miami, USA, Center of Contemporary Art Andratx, Spain, Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria, Hayward Gallery London, UK.
