Comprehensive insights into the work of the media pioneer. We are pleased to invite you to the opening of the exhibition »Ulrike Rosenbach. today is tomorrow« at the ZKM | Karlsruhe.

As one of the first female artists in Germany Ulrike Rosenbach turned to the then new medium of video in the early 1970s and used its specific expressive possibilities in live video actions, among other things. In her works, Rosenbach addresses questions of female identity, gender-specific role attributions, and the holistic relationship between man and nature.

On the occasion of her 80th birthday, the ZKM is presenting more than 120 works - including objects, videos, media installations and sculptures, photographs and drawings from more than five decades - in a comprehensive exhibition of the processual and cross-media work of the important media art and performance pioneer.
