Gretchen Bender Estate
Announcing Global Representation
Sprüth Magers is honored to announce the global representation of the Estate of Gretchen Bender (1951–2004). Bender was an influential figure in late twentieth-century American art and a key observer of the effects of the inundation of mass media on the human experience.
Nearly twenty years after her death, Bender’s works still function to critique the conflation of violence and spectacle in mass communications, as well as the loss of empathy and political agency in the age of corporate media. Simultaneously entertaining and critical, they foreshadow many of today’s immersive, virtual installations.
