Josephine Meckseper

 

21. February 2009  –  3. May 2009

Featuring artworks by:
Josephine Meckseper

Situated somewhere between the trappings of political activism and mass consumerism, the works of Josephine Meckseper (born 1964 in Lilienthal, lives and works in New York) are like sculptural collages that evoke the paradoxes of the current capitalist value system. In Meckseper’s first solo exhibition in Switzerland, the migros museum für gegenwartkunst is exhibiting a series of new works investigating the complex interaction between the auto and oil industries and the war in Iraq.
