About the work
Josephine Meckseper
German, b. 1964
Follow

Josephine Meckseper makes what some have called artifacts of contemporary society. The German installation artist describes her motive as capturing the present so that her viewers are looking at an archaeological display of what it was like in 2013. In 2000, Meckseper developed what has since become known as her distinctive style: retail display-like assemblages in mirrored glass vitrines, featuring recognizable consumer products. Common subjects in these works include car racing, lingerie, fast food, hip-hop, and mass media. Meckseper’s more recent installations directly address the United States government, particularly its war and international policies. However, Meckseper is careful to note that she does not consider her work political, asserting, “there is no message.”
