Mika Rottenberg (born 1976) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She immigrated to Israel with her family in 1977. In 1998, she graduated from Hamidrasha, Bait Berl College of Arts, Israel. In 2000, Rottenberg moved to New York to continue her education, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in 2000 and a Master of Fine Arts from Columbia University in 2004.
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. Rottenberg's work was showcased at the Whitney Biennial 2008.
Mika Rottenberg addresses themes of labor and value in her interdisciplinary practice. El Anatsui explores similar concepts in his sculpture and printmaking practices, often employing entire villages to complete his monumental projects. View his work.
- In the collection of our sister gallery, form & concept, Thais Mather also explores roles that women play in contemporary society—from mothers to often-anonymous creators of craft objects. View her work.
