Judith Hopf

Formal questions often translate into political and social ones in the work of German artist Judith Hopf. A tree branch growing out of an abandoned building’s window is a fleeting moment of grace amidst desolation. When cast in bronze, its fragility can exert a subtle authority, and can perhaps stand in the way of those who might want to replace an empty old building with a fancy new one. Consider it Hopf’s quiet act of protest—silence and stillness can also contain brute force. The artist’s concrete sheep, cast from standard moving boxes, get their strength from how little they move and how little they seem to tolerate movement.


Judith Hopf’s  selected solo exhibitions include Praxes Berlin, Kaufmann Repetto, New York, Galerie, Deborah Schamoni, Munich, Kunsthalle Lingen, Kunstverein, Studio Voltaire, London, and Fondazione Morra Greco, Naples, among others. Hopf has participated in a variety of group exhibitions including Triennale for Video Art, Mechelen and dOCUMENTA13, Kassel. She is currently teaching Fine Art at the Städelschule in Frankfurt am Main.
