Martha Rosler, Irrespective Installation

Martha Rosler, Cargo Cult from Irrespective Installation (2018-2019), The Jewish Museum in NY

I recently discovered Martha Rosler’s new installation that focuses on her ideological methods of looking. She used different forms of communication, such as photography, video, and banners, to analyze oppressive political, economic, and social systems in our society today.

In her work above, I was fascinated by her use of depth to show the crane picking up the boxes. Each box seemed like a part of a whole, yet still featured the majority of the woman’s whole face. Her social commentary on the expectation of women’s appearances is only a small part of her active role on combating social injustice.
