With a career spanning four decades, Isa Genzken's works draw on everyday material culture, including design, consumer goods, the media, architecture, and urban environments. Drawing loosley on the legacies of Constructivism and Minimalism and often involving a critical, open dialogue with Modernist architecture, her interest lies in the way in which common aesthetic styles come to illustrate and embody contemporary political and social ideologies.
