Uta Barth


Uta Barth is a contemporary photographer born in Berlin, Germany in 1958. A professor at University of California, Riverside, she lives and works in Los Angeles.

Barth’s work focuses on experiences in the periphery and the inconsequential passing of moments.

Her artwork uses sequence to address the passing of time and how it is understood by our visual perception. 

Barth often focuses on an unoccupied points in space, making the familiar and everyday become abstract and invisible. This eliminates the narrative, so that images are disrupted from the visual experience. Her photographs are meant to immerse the viewer in the act of looking. 

In Barth‚Äôs words, her work is about the ‚Äúincidental, the ordinary, and the insignificant information that surrounds us.‚ÄĚ She challenges the concept of the conventional image by removing the central object, so that the background, the physical space, becomes the subject.¬†

Barth has participated in solo and group exhibitions throughout the US and Europe.

Numerous international museums have collected her work include the MoMA (New York), the Whitney, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Getty Museum and the Tate Modern (London) among others.
