Rosa Menkman 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. 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. This is the digital version of a live av-performance first done on national Danish television and afterward realized at the Transmediale in Germany and the Nova festival in Brazil.
