Since the early 1990s, Erika Rothenberg has been creating satirical greeting cards that exposed the private and public maladies of American life. In connection with the exhibition Take Care, this participatory conversation considers Rothenberg’s humorous approach and graphic sensibility towards taste, care, and politics. 

Program led by Gary Kafer, Academic Engagement Graduate Intern in the Smart Museum’s Feitler Center for Academic Inquiry.
