Rosemarie Trockel (*1952) is a German Artist, and an important figure in the international contemporary art movement. In the German art scene dominated by male stars like Beuys, Anselm Kiefer, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, and Georg Baselitz, her subversive leanings soon pegged her as an enfant terrible. She addressed issues of sexuality, feminism and the human body, and also questioned the hierarchy of systems, political, social and even aesthetic. Trockel has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions, e.g. at the Moderna Museet Stockholm, the Dia Center for the Arts in New York, Whitechapel Art Gallery London, and Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
