The solo show on Kunstverein Hamburg’s upper floor marks the first extensive appraisal of the oeuvre of Austrian artist Kiki Kogelnik (1935–1997) in Germany. The exhibition continues Kunstverein’s series of enquiries into positions of feminist art at the time and in circles associated with Pop Art, which began in 2011 with the solo show on Evelyne Axell (1935–1972). As a contemporary art institution, the Kunstverein’s mission is not only to present young art but also to place present-day artistic output in a historical context. The majority of the almost 90 exhibited works presented in the exhibition can be considered “Pop-related works,” whereby the exhibition focuses on the 1960s and thus on a relatively short but intense period in Kiki Kogelnik’s oeuvre.
