Her messages have been displayed in both galleries and public spaces, as well as framed and unframed photographs, posters, postcards, t-shirts, electronic signboards, billboards and on a train station platform in Strasbourg, France. For the past decade Kruger has created installations of video, film, audio and projection. Enveloping the viewer with the seductions of direct address, her work is consistently about the kindnesses and brutalities of social life: about how we are to one another. Kruger's works are direct and evoke an immediate response. Usually her style involves the cropping of a magazine or newspaper image enlarged in black and white. The enlargement of the image is done as crudely as possible to monumental proportions. A message is stenciled on the image, usually in white letters against a background of red. The text and image are unrelated in an effort to create anxiety by the audience that plays on the fears of society." (Janson, p. 992).
In 2005 Kruger was honored at the 51st Venice Biennale with the "Golden Lion" for Lifetime Achievement. Kruger is currently a professor at the University of California at Los Angeles.
Artworks of Yolanda and Barbara for the first site seem to be so distinct. And even if it was made almost at the one period of time it still has many differences. For instance Yolanda’s art is more about immigrant and Latin women problems. As it was mentioned before, some of her works were inspired by political and personal problems, regarding attitude to Mexican women, and stereotypes that so bothered her. In fact Yolanda is a fighter. And her artworks are her the strongest knocks. Drawing another picture, or making a movie on a burning theme she was just like taking out her weapon. So gentle, female and full of personal anxiety, emotional experience, on her feelings, but still a weapon. And Barbara. Barbara has had another weapons to fight with the bad sides of humans stereotypes. She did not draw, she was closer to some kind of fashion, some kind of picture arts. And the main distinct of these women is that Barbara used acute phrases with odd and unused pictures.
Anyways, these two women similar in trying to convey their ideas to society, using the same weapon.
