Rosa Menkman

nl 1983

Rosa Menkman (NL, 1983) is a Dutch artist/theorist who focuses on visual artifacts created by accidents in digital media. The visuals she makes are the result of glitches, compressions, feedback and other forms of noise. Although many people perceive these accidents as negative experiences, Menkman emphasizes their positive consequences. In 2011 Menkman wrote The Glitch Moment/um*, a book on the exploitation and popularization of glitch artifacts (published by the Institute of Network Cultures), organized the GLI.TC/H festivals in both Chicago and Amsterdam and curated the Aesthetics symposium of transmediale 2012. Besides this, Rosa Menkman is pursuing a PhD at Goldsmiths, London, under the supervision of Matthew Fuller and Geert Lovink.
