|Year of birth||1948|
Genzken studied at the Hamburg University of Fine Arts and Düsseldorf Art Academy, and made her debut with the floor-placed abstract sculpture Ellipsoids while still a student. Since then she has remained a leading figure in German contemporary art. Her sculpture made of concrete representing a radio, exhibited here, is one of a series she began in 1982. It celebrates the beauty of the industrial, and shows its unique presence as an architectural construction.
