Rosa Menkman (born 1983) is a Dutch art theorist, curator, glitch artist and visual artist specialising in glitch art and resolution theory. Menkman has curated several international exhibitions of other artists' work.[1] Menkman investigates video compression, feedback, and glitches, using her exploration to generate works such as The Collapse of PAL (2011), in which Menkman acknowledges the end of Phase Alternating Line—an analogue video programming structure.[2] This is the digital version of a live av-performance first done on national Danish television and afterward realized at oa. Transmediale (Germany) and Nova festival (Brasil).[3]

Glitch art[edit]

In 2011, Menkman published Network Notebook #04: The Glitch Moment(um). This book uses information theory to propose an understanding of "glitch art" as a particular genre of contemporary art. She argues that the glitch shifts between being an artifact and a process.[4]

She also wrote A Vernacular of File Formats[5] and the Glitch Studies Manifesto[6] in the same year. The manifesto was awarded 'best practice' by Virtueel Platform, then sector institute for e-culture in the Netherlands.[7]

The publication of The Glitch Moment(um) coincided with the GLI.TC/H festival, organized by Menkman in collaboration with American artists Nick Briz and Jon Satrom. The first GLI.TC/H festival in 2010 (Chicago) was followed by a second and third edition in 2011 (Chicago, Amsterdam, Birmingham) and 2012 (Chicago).[8]

In 2015 Menkman opened the institutions of Resolution Disputes at Transfer Gallery in New York.[9] In October 2015, one of the works in the show, DCT, referencing Discrete Cosine Transform was awarded 1st prize at the Crypto Design Challenge hosted by MOTI.[10]

Her Vernacular of File Formats piece has attainted "cult status".[11] It was translated to Polish (together with Glitch Studies Manifesto), commented and republished in Glitch art is dead in 2016.[12]
