An exhibition that delves into the work of this German artist who was active between 1956 and 1968
Charlotte Posenenske only made art between 1956 and 1968, but her work has gone beyond all borders. The German artist was born Charlotte Mayer in Wiesbaden to a Jewish family. She studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts Stuttgart with artist Willi Baumeister, who introduced her to Soviet Constructivism and the Modern movement. Now, the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona is paying tribute to her with an exhibition focusing solely on her work: “Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress”. It features everything from her first drawings and paintings through her final modular sculptures, as well as the aluminium relief pieces that made her so famous. Plus, you’ll get to see original prototypes of these sculptures, as well as newly made elements. Posenenske’s work moves through Minimalism, Conceptualism, participatory art and performance, social practice and institutional criticism.
“Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress” will be on from 18 October to 8 March, Wednesdays through Mondays from 11 am to 7:30 pm, except Sundays, when the Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona is open from 10 am to 3 pm. It is a travelling exhibition that will also be at Kunstsammlung Nordrhein Westfalen in Düsseldorf and MUDAM in Luxembourg.
The general ticket to the MACBA costs €11. More information is available on the museum website.
