BIO
Martha Rosler works across a range of media, including photography, video, writing, performance, sculpture, and installation, often addressing matters of the public sphere and everyday life, especially as they affect women. Rosler has for many years produced works on war and the "national security climate,” connecting everyday experiences at home with the conduct of war abroad — most famously in House Beautiful: Bringing the War Home, originally made as a response to the war in Vietnam in the late 1960s and reprised in 2004-2008 as a new series on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Rosler has had numerous solo exhibitions at museums and galleries internationally and has published over 15 books of art and cultural criticism, most recently Culture Class (2012), on artists and gentrification. In 2012 she presented her performance installation Meta-Monumental Garage Sale at MoMA, New York. Her ground-breaking 3-exhibition cycle, If You Lived Here…, on homelessness, housing, and the built environment, which she organized at the Dia Art Foundation in New York in 1989, is regarded as a touchstone exhibition on these themes. Versions of this exhibition cycle have circulated in various forms over the past 25 years in the US and abroad, most recently at the Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin and at the Museum Moderner Kunst in Vienna in 2015. It is the basis for programing at The New Foundation Seattle in 2016.
