Ulrike Rosenbach «Sorry Mister»
Ulrike Rosenbach, «Sorry Mister», 1974

 Ulrike Rosenbach
«Sorry Mister»

Made during the ‘Prospekt ‘74’ exhibition in the Kölnischer Kunstverein, Cologne, this performance tape consists of one sole action: a hand continuously slapping a thigh to produce an angry red mark on the skin over the course of the performance. Ulrike Rosenbach shows aggression against the self under the microscope of the video camera. The extreme close-up – the opposite of ‘turning the other way’ – records a resolve to stop glossing over specific phenomena in the history of women. Sorry mister, this game is over.
