Annegret Soltau is known for her installations, performances, and photographs that address the relationship between the body and the urban landscape.
Soltau's works often explore the tension between individuality and conformity in modern society, and she frequently incorporates her own body into her works to create a connection between the artwork and the viewer.
Her works deal with issues such as sexuality, motherhood, bodily changes, and discrimination against women.
