Composed of different members over the years, the New York collective challenges the strategies deployed by these industries, replacing them with alternative systems.
Bernadette Corporation has cultivated a mystique around its collective by adopting the form and tactics of a corporation, staging ‘secret’ events, and authoring a collaborative novel.
In 2015, the Stedelijk purchased an important group of works by the collective – videos, photos, fashion designs from their Autumn/Winter 1997 collection, and a floor sculpture from their underground film project Pedestrian Cinema. These acquisitions will be presented in gallery 0.7, as part of the Stedelijk Museum’s 2016 exhibition program featuring a young generation of artists.
