Summary Director Claudia Müller followed American conceptual artist Jenny Holzer (b. 1950) over a ten-year period, at work and in numerous exhibitions, gaining a unique perspective on her work. The film traces her career, from the young artist putting up posters in New York City in the late 1970s to the LED (light emitting diode) installations of today...The works and projects of Jenny Holzer, who among other distinctions received a Lion d'or in Venice in 1990, can be found in all the world's major museums and have been acclaimed by critics and public alike...Since reappropriating advertising text displays (originally created for propaganda) in the early 1980s, with their rapid blinking and flickering messages, she has developed a wide following.--
