Josephine Meckseper (b. 1964) has developed a practice which melds the aesthetic language of modernism with a profound critique of consumerism In her shop windows, vitrines, installations, photographs, films and magazine projects she draws a direct correlation to the way consumer culture defines and circumvents subjectivity and sublimates the key instruments of individual political agency. Her works have been included in international biennials such as the 2010 Whitney Biennial; the Second Moscow Biennial of Contemporary Art (2007); Whitney Biennial: Day for Night (2006); and Biennale d’Art Contemporain de Lyon: Experiencing Duration (2005). She has also had solo exhibitions at the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zürich; Ausstellungshalle zeitgenössische Kunst, Münster; the Blaffer Gallery/Art Museum of the Univeristy of Houston, (2009) and a retrospective at the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart (2007). Her work was featured at the Museum of Modern Art in New Photography in 2008, Contemplating the Void at the Guggenheim Museum, New York in 2010. A large installation by the artist was included in the Sharjah Biennial 10, Plot for a Biennial (2011).
