Josephine Meckseper Bio

About The Artist

The German-born New Yorker Josephine Meckseper's installations, photographs, and films mix politics and consumerism. Often they are carefully styled to look like advertisements or shop-window displays, but a closer look reveals photographs of protests or counter-cultural paraphernalia. Meckseper has appeared in two Whitney Biennials and has had solo shows at Zurich's Migros Museum fur Gegenwartkunst and the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart, among other venues. In a temporary project by the Art Production Fund, she recently installed two replicas of mid-20th-century oil pumps in an empty lot near Times Square.
