Mika Rottenberg Still from Cheese – 2007

Mika Rottenberg at Laurent Godin Gallery

Mika Rottenberg’s videos explore labour – particularly repetitive women’s work. Her glamorous and oddly erotic workers are squeezed into sweatshops – often literally. Bodily fluids are sometimes part of the production process, where lo-fi machinery and Heath Robinson-like contraptions produce uncertain goods.

Frontera by Teresa Margolles

The Museion
27 May to 21 August 2011

Violence as an integral part of daily life: pain and death are constant themes in the work of the Mexican artist Teresa Margolles. The Museion exhibition tackles the murders and disappearances in the city of Jaurez in Mexico: a central element of the presentation is a wall with visible bullet holes left by executioners.

The show also features a filmed action created by the artist in Bolzano, inspired by the thought that all places have a story of suffering etched into their past.

At first glance, her works often seem to be minimalist in their form. Viewers only discover that they are deeply emotional and dramatic when they become aware of the rigorous realism in the choice of material.
