A crucial figure in Post-war contemporary art, Isa Genzken (born 1948), is a Berlin based sculptor whose work re-imagines architecture, assemblage, and installation, giving form to new plastic environments and precarious structures. The artist represented Germany at the 2007 Venice Biennale and has shown her work in leading museums across Europe. She was among a group of prominent international artists featured in the exhibition “Unmonumental,” the survey that inaugurated the New Museum’s SANAA building. On November 13, 2010 her sculpture “Rose II” was installed outside the New Museum, NYC as part of a year long rotating installation.
