Originally known for her large-format knitted paintings, over the last 30 years, Trockel, one of Germany’s most revered contemporary artists, has branched out into video, drawing, sculpture and installation. Called “bold in matter, mild in manner,” by Skulptur Projekte Münster 2007, she is deeply articulate about feminist issues. Witness this conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist.

The German artist Rosemarie Trockel (born 1952) adapts a variety of media to address contentious matters of gender. Trockel is perhaps best known for her "knit" canvases of the mid-1980s, in which lengths of knitted wool patterned with political and consumer motifs such as the hammer and sickle or the Playboy bunny were hung on stretchers to resemble conventional paintings. In a gently humorous work from 1988, Trockel fitted a steel cube with six hot plates, in a simultaneous nod to the pervasive masculinity of Minimalism and the feminine domain of cooking. Regardless of media, Trockel begins each new work with ink, charcoal, pencil, collaged, or computer drawings. These serve as studies, charting her observations and methods, and also constitute an independent body of work. This publication presents a selection of graphic prints and a series of drawings and collages made especially for this book, along with designs for the book itself.

This collection of Rosemarie Trockel's work from 1980 to the present is full of video, drawings, wool, everyday objects, sculptures, and all the media with which she has advanced what Artforum describes as a "long-running effort to expand and challenge the terms of dialogue between artist and audience."

The German artist Rosemarie Trockel has gained international renown for a multifaceted practice encompassing painting, sculpture, video, and drawing. Issues including a concern with natural history, the creative expression of diverse species, and the representation and role of women in contemporary culture fuel her work. A Cosmos—a world shaped by Trockel’s ideas and affinities—is presented in this volume, companion to a major exhibition, which places her in the company of others whom she regards as kindred spirits. Juxtaposing her work with objects that range across eras and cultures, borrowed from the fields of art history, botany, craft, and outsider art, this exceptional ensemble illuminates Trockel's highly influential practice of the past thirty years.
