About Rosemarie Trockel

German Conceptual artist Rosemarie Trockel explores feminist and cultural themes using a wide array of mediums, from drawings on paper to elaborate, mechanized installations. Reflecting her view of the art world as male-dominated, Trockel’s works can be self-consciously ironic, exemplified by her series of machine-made balaklavas featuring symbols and logos such as the cross and the Playboy bunny (Balaklava, 1986). These combine a number of conflicting ideas: the historically feminine craft of knitting set against the threatening imagery of the balaklava, capitalist mass-production juxtaposed with political violence.

German, b. 1952, Schwerte, Germany, based in Cologne, Germany
