Since 1994, Uta Barth has been creating a series of photographs which consist of blurred images generated by focusing the camera on an unoccupied foreground. These unframed, empty, but lushly seductive images present only background information, implying the absence of subjects, and referring to the function of images as containers of information and the role of the viewer in reading that information. This book is a faithful reproduction of the long out-of-print catalogue which was published on the occasion of Barth's first major museum exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, in 1996.
