Barbara Rosenthal

International Garbage (2010) DVD, color, min

Audial inventions by the young German sound artist Brandstifter accompany Barbara Rosenthal's compulsive 4-nation collection of collectors collecting. These cacophonous, kaleidoscopic bits work both as abstract composites and as separate little movies. And, knowing Rosenthal, there must be some meaning in here somewhere. What could that be? Look again into your rubbish: seek hidden priceless gems. This video (shot in Beijing, Paris, Moscow and New York) was released concurrently with "Dirty Book," a book of leavings from her studio and kitchen, another of Rosenthal's works that make art from the trash of life.
