Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress
A handsome overview celebrating the neglected German minimalist sculptor Charlotte Posenenske
Embracing reductive geometry, industrial fabrication and repetitive forms, German artist Charlotte Posenenske (1930-85) developed a form of mass-produced minimalism that addressed the pressing socioeconomic concerns of the 1960s by circumventing the art market and rejecting established formal and cultural hierarchies.Posenenske exhibited widely during the brief period that she was active as an artist (1956-68), alongside peers such as Hanne Darboven, Donald Judd and Sol LeWitt. Featuring metallic endpapers that echo her aesthetic, Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress traces the evolution of Posenenske's practice from early experiments with mark-making and the transitional aluminum wall reliefs to industrially fabricated modular sculptures produced in unlimited series and assembled or arranged by viewers at will.
