Josephine Meckseper, born in Germany, uses commercial forms of presentation such as vitrines, window displays, and magazines, to demonstrate inextricable influences of consumer culture on society.  Meckseper melds the aesthetic language of modernism with the formal language of commercial display, combining them with images and artifacts of historical undercurrents and political protest movements. She approaches her art as a conceptual experiment — throughout her installations and vitrines, by simultaneously exposing and encasing common signifiers, such as advertisements, political symbols, and everyday objects, she creates a window into the collective unconscious of our time.
