Caro Jost

Born 1965 in Munich, Germany, lives and works in Munich and New York

Concept artist Caro Jost appropriates found objects and traces of the past, which she transfers into abstract works of art using a technique she developed herself. The strategy of collecting and archiving is a central component of her artistic work. Jost transfers the material onto canvas and deconstructs its message by commenting, editing and alienating. In doing so, she is concerned with the transfer of historical reality into the present. The artist has achieved great recognition for her development of the “Streetprint” image type, for which she creates actual street impressions of venues that have personal, social or art historical meaning.
