Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress presents an in-depth look at the practice of the German artist between 1956 and 1968, a short but intense period, when she was active in making art. Posenenske (1930–1985) was born Charlotte Mayer in Wiesbaden, Germany, to a Jewish family. She studied at the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart with Willi Baumeister, who introduced her to modernism and Soviet Constructivism.

Posenenske’s works can be described as oscillating between Minimalism and Conceptualism, participatory art and performance, social practice and institutional criticism. The exhibition brings together her first drawings and paintings (her earliest experiments with mark making), aluminium wall-reliefs, and her last and best-known modular sculptures. The exhibition includes both the original prototypes of these modular sculptures as well as newly fabricated elements.
