Renate BertlmannRenate Bertlmann (born 1943, Vienna, Austria) is an Austrian feminist avant-garde visual artist, who since the early 1970s has worked on issues surrounding themes of sexuality, love, gender and eroticism within a social context, with her own body often serving as the artistic medium. Her diverse practice spans across painting, drawing, collage, photography, sculpture and performance, and actively confronts the social stereotypes assigned to masculine and feminine behaviours and relationships.
Bertlmann represented Austria at the 58th Venice Biennale in 2019. That year her exhibition 'Hier ruht meine Zärtlichkeit [Here lies my Tenderness]' inaugurated the new State Gallery of Lower Austria in Krems.
Renate Bertlmann is represented by Richard Saltoun Gallery, London and Galerie Steinek, Vienna.
