Aram Bartholl

At Top Speed
Posted by Gestalten—04/2012

Aram Bartholl’s work explores the power structures, the social systems, the cultural innovations, the inner dynamics, the languages, and the products that are shaping our age. The Berlin-based artist, whose first monograph Aram Bartholl: The Speed Book is published by Gestalten, creates savvy experiments with transitions from the virtual to the physical like USB sticks embedded into walls, buildings, and curbs; giant real-life versions of Google's red map markers positioned in public spaces; and portraits generated from image search results. We met him for a Gestalten.tv interview to discuss what he refers to as his "self-created twilight zone."

On April 12 from 6PM–8PM, Eyebeam will host the official US 'The Speed Book' launch party of Aram Bartholl's first artist monograph. The event will feature:

The Monocle Guide to Good Business on Schöner Wohnen.

Knife and Fork in the October issue of PAGE. "Einladung zum Genießen."

Hallo, ich bin Erik recommended on Boersenblatt."Eine kluge, detailversessene und mit viel Empathie gefertigte Werkschau eines der ganz Großen im Grafikdesign. Die Verbeugung vor einem Hitzkopf, der Aufregung stets in Tätigkeit umsetzte."

Hallo, ich bin Erik in the October issue of PAGE. "320 Seiten zu Stationen seines Lebens und Schaffens - da findet jeder Geschichten, die er noch nicht kennt. Schön sind auch die vielen Beiträge von Kreativen, die ihm verbunden sind und aus dem Nähkästchen plaudern ... Vor allem aber lebt das Buch von den vielen, vielen Fotos, die oft einen unbekannten Erik zeigen."

Full-page feature on Wunderkammern in the October issue of Weltkunst. "Das bunte Leben der Anderen. (Das) Bildband erzählt vom neuen Eklektizismus des Wohnens."

Los Logos 7 recommended on Slanted.

Hallo, ich bin Erik in the September 18 issue of Horizont. "Ein Album der Fundstücke, eine Werkschau mit überraschenden Akzenten. Erstmals wird das fünf Jahrzehnte umspannende Werk von Spiekermann ... greifbar."
