Born in Lüneburg, Germany, in 1946, Annegret Soltau is one of the main personalities of the development of experimental and performance art in the 1970s and 1980s. She also played an important role in the development of feminist art during this same period. The photographer studied painting and graphic design at the Art Academy of Hamburg and Vienna, before specializing in photo assemblage. In 1977, she participated in the first all-female exhibition in Darmstadt, and in 2007, her work became part of Wack! Art and the Feminist Revolution, an event examining the foundations and legacy of women’s art, at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. Her experimental work is part of a reflective process that seeks to bring together the conscious and the unconscious.
