The reader TEXTWERK brings together scholarly contributions on the artistic and academic-essayistic works of the renowned media artist, director and author Hito Steyerl. How does Steyerl's writing inscribe itself in her films and videos? How do these in turn feed back into her texts and exhibition practices? Interdisciplinarily conceived between media, theatre and cultural studies as well as art history, the anthology provides the first analysis of this central aspect of Steyerl's work. It also includes the current conditions of art reception in pandemic times. This publication was prompted by a digital workshop held in November 2020 in cooperation between the DFG Research Training Group The Documentary. Excess and Deprivation at the Universities of Bochum and Düsseldorf with the Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen.
