Most of the encounters that unfold in Martha Rosler’s works originate in seemingly ordinary everyday situations: scenes of domestic life or everyday activities such as shopping, watching the news, reading the newspaper, or traveling. The photographic series featured in this book – works from the eighties to the present – are also devoted to these themes. They are studies of the highways and byways of daily life, views of roads, subway tunnels, airports, shopping districts, parking lots, and the like. These photographic documents of Rosler’s also offer critical insights into day-to-day movements within rigidly structured relationships of power.
