about

Rosemarie Trockel (b. Schwerte 1952; lives and works in Cologne) rose to international fame in the mid-1980s with her knitting pictures. A second group of works from the 1990s consists of numerous variations on wall works and sculptures into which the artist integrates conventional stovetops. These works gave rise to the entrenched notion that she is an artist who interrogates the images that define women’s social roles, dedicated to contributing to their deconstruction. Yet Rosemarie Trockel’s oeuvre extends far beyond this one aspect. In its diversity, it defies any attempt to characterize it according to conventional criteria. Rosemarie Trockel is a painter as well as a graphic artist, a sculptor as well as a conceptual artist. In 2011, she receives the Kaiserring of the City of Goslar, one of the world’s most renowned art awards. Includes essays by Friedemann Malsch, director, Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein, and Wulf Herzogenrath, director, Kunsthalle Bremen.
