Martha Rosler

Martha Rosler has become an artist of interest after recently viewing her collage series titled “Bringing The War Home”, a collection of works from the seventies which addressed the Vietnam war by juxtaposing images from two disparate media sources – Life Magazine and House Beautiful. The Aesthetics of Terror website appropriately described her collage work as “image sabotage”.

One of Rosler’s current projects is the “Martha Rosler Library”, a traveling-study hall filled with thousands of books from the artists personal collection. While creating a peculiarly intimate window into the intellectual development and inspiration of the artist, this work also communicates an earnest intent to share information in a manner non-subjugated by her own interpretations.
