Josephine Meckseper

10 minutes after

For the last 20 years, New York based German contemporary artist Josephine Meckseper s practice has interrogated consumerism, politics and art history through juxtapositions of images and objects.

Drawn from the visual and material cultures of protest and political activism, advertising, cinema and early 20th-century display architecture, Meckseper's works are visually confrontational yet subtle, relying on strategies of infiltration. In her new work, 10 minutes after, Meckseper (b. 1964) deploys the readymade object as a form of 'analog recording device' in which found materials shelves, wall vitrines, display racks become repositories of social, cultural, political and economic significance.
