Pamela Rosenkranz | No Core


Edited by Katya Garcia-Anton, Gianni Jetzer, Hilke Wagner, Quinn Latimer, Pamela Rosenkranz
Texts by Alex Kitnick, Robin Mackay, Reza Negarestani

No Core is the first monograph on the increasingly celebrated oeuvre of Pamela Rosenkranz (born 1979). Rosenkranz seeks to collapse the meaning of the artwork into the meaninglessness of pure materiality. In challenging these conditions of art, she activates a contemporary form of nihilism. From paintings produced from the foil of emergency blankets or Ralph Lauren-branded latex paint and soft drinks, to plastic water bottles filled with skin- or urine-hued liquids, to a monitor featuring an approximation of and challenge to Yves Klein blue, Rosenkranz’s artworks take aim at the empty centers of history, politics, and our contemporary culture as a whole.
