The exhibition on Rosemarie Trockel not only illustrates the standing that accrues to the artist's work within contemporary art. The artistic positions of the elder colleagues also, in a cryptic way, form the programmatic starting point for Rosemarie Trockel's concepts. An art scene that has been largely male-dominated, even into the 1980s, spurs Rosemarie Trockel to dissent.

She persistently formulates counterpositions in which she confronts the male artist-genius with feminine roles and subject matter. The various groups of works reflect her standpoint within a decidedly feminine artistic realm and are unstinting in their fundamental critique of the prevailing art system.

Despite her critical stance, Rosemarie Trockel's works encounter the viewer as lively, highly imaginative conceptual constructs and as vivid and convincing artistic creations. The artist manages to visualise even weighty intellectual cargo in an ironic and humorous way, avoiding dogmatic oppositions or, indeed, polemic.
