Cool Hunting Video Presents: Mika Rottenberg

The multimedia artists shows us her Harlem studio, where she recently built her folk tale-themed entry to the Whitney Biennial

For our final video taking a closer look at this year’s Whitney Biennial, we travel to the Harlem studio of video artist Mika Rottenberg. Known for videos depicting women engaging in elaborate systems of production that often harvest their own body, Mika shows us the set of her latest piece (and Biennial installation), “Cheese” and tells us the backstory of making the video. We also spend some time at the former brewery talking over her motivations and strategies—from the role that sound plays to finding her actors online.
