Althea Thauberger

The State of the Situation


The State of the Situation features images and writing on Vancouver-based artist Althea Thauberger’s multi-venue examination of her work in 2019 and 2020. This publication features essays and texts by Kimberly Phillips, Melanie O’Brian, Jan-Erik Lundström, Zarmeene Shah, Matthew Hyland, Nancy Noble, and Kristy Trinier.

Thauberger’s projects involve sustained engagements with communities associated with the sites of their production. These have included the Capri Cinema (Karachi), the Bohnice Psychiatric Hospital (Prague) the Kandahar International Airport at the Kandahar Airfield, (Southern Afghanistan), and the 200 block of Carrall Street (Vancouver, BC) amongst others.
