Bernadette Corporation

This is the first monograph on the work of Bernadette Corporation, the New York-based collective founded in the early ’90s.

The book extends from their retrospective exhibition Bernadette Corporation: 2000 Wasted Years held at Artists Space, New York (2012) and ICA, London (2013), constituting a further site to reframe BC’s activities and identity of the past 20 years.

Since the 1990s the New York-based collective has fashioned itself as publisher, filmmaker, designer, novelist, artist, political radical, among other identities. The book extends from their retrospective Bernadette Corporation: 2000 Wasted Years at Artists Space in 2012, constituting yet another site to reframe the activities of BC spanning the past 20 years.

Bernadette Corporation: 2000 Wasted Years is structured chronologically, loosely following the year-by-year timeline of the group’s history. The publication gathers a vast array of visual and textual material spanning the rich image grammar and styling of BC’s operations within the realm of so called style-culture, including a fashion line; their interventions into the publishing culture of the ‘90s, including BC’s own short-lived magazine Made in USA; the fragmented output of Pedestrian Cinema developed during the group’s time in Berlin; up to the fusion of poetics, branding and meta-commentary that characterized Bernadette Corporation’s gallery shows of the 2000s.
