This shrub has been bugging me because it's overgrown and I don't know what it is. I would like to trim it, but don't know how to do it properly because I have never trimmed anything before. I live in central Wisconsin. Thanks

Maybe Alpine Currant: (Ribes Alpinum)
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

That's what it looks like how would I go about pruning it? It's a mess.
