Louisiana exhibition poster with Birgit Jürgenssen's work, Ich möchte hier raus! - I want to get out of here! (1976/2006). In connection with the exhibition series, Louisiana on Paper, in 2019 Louisiana presented the Austrian avant-garde artist, Birgit Jürgenssen (1949-2003). The work is part of the museum's own collection.

Birgit Jürgenssen belongs to a strong circle of female Austrian artists who emerged in the 1970s. Jürgensen's works are seen as playful, humorous and poetic. Several of her well-known works are based on women's conditions and radiate a claustrophobia, as an expression of the limitations women in particular were subject to at the time.

Despite the fact that Jürgenssen's starting point was thus grounded in feminism, she was not interested in being part of a feminist movement—she also saw it as a limitation of her freedom.

The showdown with the notion of the normal remained a central theme throughout Birgit Jürgenssen's work.
