Aura Rosenberg lives and works in New York and Berlin. Her work draws on photography, video, painting, sculpture, installation and performance to probe sexuality, gender, childhood, work/play, artistic identity, family relationships and world history. She has published three books of photographs: Head Shots, (StopOver Press 1996), a series of black/white portraits of men seemingly caught in a moment of ecstasy; Berlin Childhood (Steidl/DAAD 2001), inspired by Walter Benjamin’s chronicle of a bourgeois upbringing in Berlin at the turn of the last century and Who Am I? What Am I? Where Am I ? (Hatje Cantz 2006), a series of children’s portraits, each made in collaboration with another artist. Her photo series Head Shots was shown this year at Kunstmuseum Stuttgart and travelled to Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern, Switzerland. A selection of her paintings, video and sculptural work is currently featured at Muzeum Susch in an exhibition titled Up To And Including Limits: After Carolee Schneeman.
Rosenberg is represented by Martos Gallery in New York City and Meliksetian Briggs Gallery in Los Angeles. She teaches at Pratt Institute and The School of Visual Arts. She also plays keyboards with her bands
