Since the late 1960s, American artist Martha Rosier has produced seminal works in the fields of photography, performance, video, installation, critical writing, and theory. Committed to an art that engages a public beyond the confines of the art world, Rosier investigates how socioeconomic realities and political ideologies dominate ordinary life. Her astute critical analyses are often cloaked in deadpan wit.
This book, which accompanies the first retrospective exhibition of Roster's work, contains seven color photo essays by Rosier; an excerpt from the curatorial project "If You Lived Here"; essays by Alexander Alberto, Catherine de Zegher, Sylvia Eiblmayr, Jodi Hauptman, and Annette Michelson; a conversation between Rosier and Benjamin Buchloh; and a biography/bibliography along with a complete list of artworks.
