Martha Rosler is the recipient of the "Spectrum" - International Prize for Photography 2005 awarded by the Stiftung Niedersachsen. This book presents her photographic series in honor of the occasion.

Martha Rosler is one of the most politically motivated artists of her generation. Most of the encounters that unfold in Rosler's works originate in seemingly ordinary everyday situations: scenes of domestic life or everyday activities such as shopping, watching the news, reading the newspaper, or traveling. Her photographs shed light on the many ways in which these routines are governed by social norms. The photographic series featured in this book - works from the eighties to the present - are also devoted to these themes. They are studies of the highways and byways of daily life, views of roads, subway tunnels, airports, shopping districts, parking lots, and the like. These astonishing documents of the photographic passion of the iconoclast Martha Rosler also offer critical insights into day-to-day movements within rigidly structured relationships of power. Exhibition schedule: Sprengel Museum Hannover, Hanover, January 30 - May 16, 2005 · Neue Gesellschaft für Bildende Kunst in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Haus am Kleistpark, Berlin, September 9 -October16, 2005
