About the Speaker
Martha Rosler works in diverse media, including video, photography, photo-text, performance, sculpture, and installation. A longtime feminist, her work often centers on the public sphere and landscapes of everyday life, especially as they affect women. Some of her best-known works deal with documentary and representation. She has frequently addressed war and the national security climate, connecting daily life at home with the conduct of war abroad. An important body of work addresses urbanism, gentrification, and the role of artists. Her work has been widely exhibited, and she has published several books of photographs and of critical writing. She has received numerous awards for her work, including several from feminist art organizations in the US.
Rosler lives and works in Brooklyn.
