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:
