Abstract: Book Description: Op Losse Schroeven and When Attitudes Become Form 1969. The American sculptor Rita McBride born 1960 in Des Moines, Iowa presents an independent and outstanding position in the field of new sculpture. In her mostly space-invasive installations, she takes up the formal vocabulary of design and architecture, where she problematises the interplay and the contradiction between function and representation. Just as knowledge of the context plays an important role in understanding her works, so the exploration of the changing environments decisively marks the setup of her exhibitions.
