Over the past ten years, the New York-based artist Josephine Meckseper has developed a practice that melds the aesthetic language of modernism with a profound critique of consumerism. Meckseper employs window displays, vitrines, installations, photographs, films and magazines to explore how consumer culture defines subjectivity. In this volume, published for her 2011 solo exhibition at the FLAG Art Foundation, New York, Meckseper presents a series of new works focusing on display modes of retail environments such as car dealerships, highlighting their aesthetic overlap with mid-century modernism. Chrome car rims sit atop mirrored pedestals; sleek corporate logos populate wall assemblages; and canvases are shrinkwrapped in plastic. Meckseper’<\#U02BC>s new vitrines, stocked with familiar and unfamiliar objects, function as time capsules of contemporary culture. The works in this catalogue possess a monumental quality, bearing as they do the insignia of American power and authority--flags, eagles and car logos.

In her photography, videos and installations, Josephine Meckseper (born 1964) sets images of political activism—photographs of demonstrations, newspaper cuttings—against twinkling consumer goods and advertising motifs. This publication concentrates on a new series of works, such as the installation “Ten High” (2007) in which silver mannequins bear anti-war slogans

Text by Okwui Enwezor, Marion Ackermann, Christian Höller, Simone Schimpf.

The work of the New York-based German conceptualist, Josephine Meckseper, deals with themes of consumerism and commodity fetishism in modern society. For example, her shop window installations, Shelves, juxtapose fashion accessories with regalia, such as Palesetinian kaffiyeh, taken from left wing protest movements. The connection between consumerism and politics was initially sparked by the confluence of luxury advertising and political news, but Meckseper also does straight politics--she has filmed anti-Bush demonstrations and Berlin protest marches. The resulting work is held in the Saatchi Collection among others, and appeared in the 2006 Whitney Biennial. This monograph, which also features contributions from Okwui Enwezor, Christian Höller and Simone Schimpf, presents a concise overview of Meckseper's visual worlds, in a wide range of video, collage, painting, sculpture and installation. Born in 1964, Meckseper was deemed one of the top ten artists to watch by New York magazine in 1996.
