Born in New York (United States), lives in New York (United States).
Martha Rosler (1943, US, lives in New York) combines conceptual art with social critique and political activism. In her installations, collages, videos, performances and other projects, she addresses many controversial topics: from equal rights for women and other excluded groups in society, social housing and segregation in the city and the shaping of male desire and women’s role in the media to the forced participation of consumerist US citizens in the Vietnam or Second Gulf wars. ‘My main theme is the linking together of “place” and “body” (often woman’s body) and its relation with the discourse of power and knowledge.’
