Annegret Soltau is a pioneer in the field of feminist art and Body Art, however, her works still generate controversy today. Again and again her artworks are considered offensive, are censored or pulled from exhibitions. In the digital age where the internet offers an anyonymous platform to users, such concrete and physical images seem disconcerting. Today, her work boasts an unbroken authenticity.
Aside from many solo and group exhibitions worldwide, including at MOCA Los Angeles, at NMWA Washington and at MoMA PS1 New York, the Mathildenhöhe in Darmstadt showed a retrospective of Annegret Soltau’s work in 2006. Her works are in diverse collections around the world including the Hamburger Kunsthalle, the Staatsgalereie Stuttgart, the Kunsthalle Bremen and the collection of the Deutsche Bank.
