Conceived as a structure for group activity and the development of individual talents.
Bernadette Corporation was founded in a nightclub in 1994. It became a shifting collaborative, exploiting the blankness of a corporate image to sidestep precise definition, and variously implicating itself in art, fashion, photography, magazine publishing, and film. It is significant to note that BC has functioned as its own kind of cultural institution, providing an uncompromised context for its multiple modes of expression.
From 1995 to 1997, Bernadette Corporation worked under the guise of an underground fashion label, and self-published an art magazine, Made in USA, until 2001. Previous video work includes Hell Frozen Over, 2000, a wintery meditation on glamour and Mallarmé starring Sylvère Lotringer. Bernadette Corporation is currently at work on a collectively authored novel to be published by Semiotext(e) in November, 2004. Represented by American Fine Arts, Co./NYC, Bernadette Corporation has exhibited at art galleries and museums worldwide.
