She has examined themes of sexuality, childhood, motherhood, work/play, family history, and world history. She has worked in a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, video, and the book. Rosenberg also plays keyboards with her bands Cornichons and Dirty Mirrors in NYC and Berlin. Her publications include Head Shots (Stop Over Press, 1996), Berliner Kindheit (Steidl, 2002), and Who Am I? What Am I, Where Am I? (Hatje Cantz VerlagIn, 2008).
