Designed around Rosler’s 1982 film Martha Rosler reads Vogue. In 2012 not a lot has changed. Rosler asks, “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…”
The script for Martha Rosler reads Vogue (Rosler, 1982) is included in full in VUOTO (2012), an artists book published for a second related exhibition – ÉVASION (2012).
