Charlotte Posenenske (Vierkantrohre Serie D, 1967/2012)
In 1968, the German artist Charlotte Posenenske decided to give up her artistic career, even though it held much promise at the time. She became an emphatic and consistent advocate of a democratic concept of art and refused to allow her works to be commercialized. For this reason Posenenske, whenever possible, had her installations be produced with industrial methods, and thereby developed her own aesthetics of resistance. Elements of her modular art are distributed all over Zürich-West, as well as in the city center and by the Museum Haus Konstruktiv, where they play with notions of uncertainty—is it art or is it architecture?
