Renate Bertlmann is one of the main protagonists of the Austrian feminist avant-garde. In recent years she has gained international attention, especially through her solo presentation at the Austrian Pavilion at the 58th Venice Biennale 2019. On the occasion of her 80th birthday, the Belvedere honors her oeuvre with a first comprehensive retrospective.
The retrospective, Fragile Obsessions, at Belvedere 21, Vienna includes some two hundred exhibits, ranging from the late 1960s to her recent artistic production, including iconic works from the 1970s, pivotal sculptures and installations, performative photographs, and drawings, as well as numerous works that will be on view for the first time. The exhibition is accompanied by an extensive publication.
