The Kunsthaus Bregenz is considered one of the most important art institutions in the world. Its widely respected architectural design by Peter Zumthor marks it as one of the most important museum buildings on an international scale. 

Mika Rottenberg’s art tells stories of odd encounters that have a serious core. She highlights the basics of work. At the same time, she forces the onlooker to become a voyeur who enters tight alleyways to witness staged work processes. Her surreal scenographies showcase the absurdity of amassing goods and the pointlessness of global distribution. Many of her installations are perfectly comical and full of erotic aspects.

Rottenberg shows our capitalistic world and its industrial production with humour and cynical hyperbole. The video NoNoseKnows — on display on the second floor of Kunsthaus Bregenz — merges two levels of production. Dressed in anoraks, Chinese women are sitting on a long table, putting grains of sands in seashells. After that, they skilfully open the seashells to retrieve the precious pearls.
