Meckseper has always cast a cold, critical eye on the imperial-financial machinations of our globalist society, mainly by examining the ways in which commodities are marketed and displayed. But for her debut with Rosen, the artist veers into the intersection of early modern art with some of the more unpleasant events of the 20th century, such as the rise of Nazism. There's also a bit of autobiography, as one of the show's elements refers to the artist's hometown, Worpswede, Germany, the location of an artist colony dating back to the 19th century. The Bauhaus and Brancusi are also namechecked in this installation, in which past meets present.
