Biography

Exploring the seduction, magic, and desperation of our hyper-capitalist, globally-connected reality, Mika Rottenberg’s elaborate visual narratives draw on cinematic and sculptural traditions to forge a new language––one that uses cause and effect structures to explore labor and globalization, economy and production of value, and how our own affective relationships are increasingly monetized. Through film, architectural installation, and sculpture, her work illuminates an interconnectedness between seemingly unrelated economies; collapsing geographies and narratives, Rottenberg weaves documentary elements with fiction into complex allegories for human conditions and global systems.
