The starting point of Isa Rosenberger´s artistic investigations are often ideologically charged architectural and monumental manifestations in urban space and its public spheres, for the reason that they exemplarily reveal the changes in the prevailing orders of perception.

In order to retrace these changes, the artist enters into a communicative process of exchange with contemporary witnesses, asking them about their personal experiences and views of (recent) historical events. For "A Monument for the Women's Centre (The Making of)" the actual void, created by tearing down a socialist monument for female workers in front of the disused ORWO film chemical plant, is regarded as a symbolic one as well as the sign of a lost identity after the elimination of socialist ideals and the loss of jobs. The void is taken as an occasion to question role images together with the former female workers and to search for ways of new appropriation and occupation.
