Rosa Menkman (NL)


Rosa Menkman is a Dutch artist and researcher of resolutions with a special focus on glitches, resolutions, cyclopes ️, impossible rainbows , unnamed colours and IANA, the goddess of staircases . In her work, she focuses on noise artifacts that result from accidents in both analogue and digital media that offer insights into their otherwise black boxed modes of operation. As a compendium to this research, she published The Glitch Moment/um (INC, 2011) on the exploitation and popularization of glitch artifacts, and Beyond Resolution (i.R.D., 2020) on the politics of resolution setting. In 2019 Menkman won the Collide, Arts at CERN Barcelona award, which inspired her recent research into what makes things im/possible, with a special focus on im/possible images.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
