Eggert’s work has been exhibited internationally including in Zurich, New York, Miami, London and Valencia.

Project Description
As an artist, Janine Eggert moves between the media of sculpture, installation, printmaking, and video and works artistically both as an individual and with Philipp Ricklefs since 2005. In her work, she primarily deals with the contradictory values of our time. Drawing from a wide range of techniques and materials in her investigations of the designed world, she develops counter-drafts to existing functional assignments, economic requirements, and patriarchal power structures.
