In this substantive talk on art and politics with Michael Rush, the provocative, and proactive, Martha Rosler recalls her famed collages of the Vietnam War era as well as her recent series picturing the war in Iraq as only Rosler would dare. This month she has a solo exhibition at the Sprengel Museum in Hannover, Germany, which has awarded her the Forderpreise Fotografie, or the Spectrum International Prize for Photography, of the Foundation of Lower Saxony. Her works, which include such pieces as Bringing the War Home: House Beautiful (1967-1972), and the Semiotics of the Kitchen (1975 are in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum and the Whitney Museum in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among several others. Her most recent work was on view last month at the Gorney, Bravin & Lee Gallery in Chelsea. Her book of selected essays, Decoys and Disruptions: Selected Writings 1975-2001, was recently published by MIT press.
