Martha Rosler reads Vogue, 2010

GreyArea, 31 Queens Road, Brighton, East Sussex, Brighton

Based on Martha Rosler’s 1982 film Martha Rosler reads Vogue; nothing much has changed: “What is Vogue? It is photography, it is voyeurism, it is mystification, it is fascination, it is desire, it is identification. … It’s the look, the pose… The skin of luxury. …It is money, it is luxury, it is having it all… … all … all…”
Martha’s text to her film is included in full in VUOTO, the companion publication to the second incarnation of Martha Rosler reads Vogue, Évasion.
