Aura Rosenberg lives and works in New York and Berlin. Her work probes sexuality, gender, childhood, artistic identity and historical construction. Her diverse practice draws on photography, video, painting, sculpture, installation and performance. 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.
She 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.
