Interview with Martha Rosler

by Martha Rosler and Jane Weinstock

October, Summer 1981, v. 17, pp. 77-98

Jane Weinstock interviews Martha Rosler. Their discussion focuses primarily on Rosler's efforts to breach the barriers between the conscious self and oppressive socio-political ideologies. Rosler comments on her formal and contextual construction of video and text (including parody, contradiction and metaphor) in order to offer a general public the transcendence from these ideologies. In their discussion of ideology and its significance to Rosler's work, Weinstock and Rosler highlight related issues of gender and feminism, class, psychoanalysis, the politics of food as a metaphor for a consumer society, ideology as institution.
