"Zwei Bügelbretter" (2008) features two ironing boards: “alienating” objects associated with a dull task traditionally carried out by women. One is set up in the conventional position, the other slopes awkwardly.
The latter, decorated with flowers and a strip of material, appears, with its bright colours and dynamic position, to be an ironic reference to the freer but more complicated position of women in modern society.
