Some works will be shown for the first time in SCHAUWERK Sindelfingen.
In the collection of Peter and Christiane Schaufler works of artists have always been a high priority. The first time the SCHAUWERK Sindelfingen now present selected works by artists. The works on display span a period from the 1970s up to recent post ions, about Veronika Kellndorfer or Kowanz, and thus enable a comprehensive overview. Many different fields, the exhibition of painting, sculpture, video works, photography and installations. The variety of the work makes it clear how rigorously the boundaries of a "feminine" feminist or decorative art were blown up in the past decades.
Much of the work is in the exhibition LADIES FIRST! first presented, as well as the meter-high rocket by Sylvie Fleury, entitled "First Spaceship on Venus" (1996). The symbol of the rocket, first occupied male is, painted by the artist in colors typical of female cosmetics. The color scheme alienates the object that no longer represents a threat or conquest, but questions about male or female patterns provides.
Along with works by Rosemarie Trockel and Isa Genzken form Fleury's works a focus of the exhibition.
