Renate Bertlmann Biography

The radical Austrian artist Renate Bertlmann has been active since the 1970s. For the past fifty years, she has focused on issues of love, sexuality, gender and eroticism, often using her own body as a medium. Bertlmann's diverse practice spans painting, drawing, collage, photography, sculpture and performance. Her work actively confronts the social stereotypes assigned to masculine and feminine behaviours and relationships.

In 1975 Renate Bertlmann was included in the seminal feminist exhibition 'MAGNA. Feminismus', curated by VALIE EXPORT, at Galerie St. Stephan, Vienna. More recently, Bertlmann was selected to represent Austria at the Biennale Arte 2019 -58th International Art Exhibition in Venice in 2019. Her exhibition Hier ruht meine Zärtlichkeit [Here lies my Tenderness] also inaugurated the new State Gallery of Lower Austria in Krems in 2019. Her work has featured in numerous important exhibitions such as Women - Feminist avant-garde of the 1970s, Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien, Vienna (2017), which travelled from The Photographer's Gallery, London (2016); Renate Bertlmann: Amo Ergo Sum, Sammlung Verbund, Vienna (2016); The World Goes Pop, Tate Modern, London (2015); and Burning Down The House, The 10th Edition of the Gwangju Biennale, South Korea (2014). Bertlmann's work is held in private and public collections and museums, including the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, France; La Gaia Foundation in London, UK; the SAMMLUNG VERBUND in Vienna, Austria and the Lentos Art Museum in Linz, Austria, amongst others.

The Belvedere is currently showing her installation of red knife-roses first displayed at the Venice Biennale as part of the CARLONE CONTEMPORARY series (20 February - 30 August 2020).
