Rosemarie Trockel Biography

Germany, 1952

Rosemarie Trockel is one of the most important figures in the contemporary art movement in Germany. She has gained international renown through her complex and controversial work that addresses contemporary concerns, especially those of women. "Woman" and her place in society, particularly in the microcosm of the art world, is a central theme of her work. She also challenges established theories about sexuality, culture, and artistic production. Her works have a decidedly romantic element that stresses lyricism over technology.
