Charlotte Posenenske

Charlotte Posenenske (b.1930, Wiesbaden; d. 1985, Frankfurt) studied art in Stuttgart at the beginning of the 1950s, and worked as a costume and set designer for regional theatres in Lübeck and Darmstadt. Following experimentation with mark making techniques and mural commissions, Posenenske began to devise wall structures that occupy the threshold between painting and sculpture. In 1967 she started mass producing of modular and reproducible sculptural units, provided with a variety of preset characteristics and standard measurements. She stopped making art altogether in 1968 and dedicated herself to the study of the sociology of labour. Since her death in 1985, her work has gained renewed attention through presentations at the São Paulo Biennial (2012); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2010); Artists Space, New York (2010); Museum of Modern Art, New York (2009); documenta 12, Kassel (2007); and MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt (1990).
