In October 1999, the MACBA held a retrospective exhibition on the American artist Martha Rosler that Elizabeth A. Macgregor had prepared for the Ikon Gallery in New York. The catalogue, which has since sold out in bookstores, includes articles by Alexander Alberro, Silvia Eiblmayr, Annette Michelson, Jodi Hauptman and Catherine de Zegher next to texts and documents written by Rosler herself and an interview with her by Benjamin Buchloh.
