Buchtipp: Aram Bartholl – The Speed Book


Vor kurzem ist die erste Monographie Namens The Speed Book des Künstlers Aram Bartholl im Berliner Gestalten Verlag erschienen.

“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. This first comprehensive monograph offers entry to an oeuvre in which space and cyberspace mingle and mangle each other, a realm that uses as little technology as possible while still speaking a digital language.  

Aram Bartholl: The Speed Book features savvy experiments with transitions from the virtual to the physical: USB sticks embedded into walls, buildings, and curbs; giant real-life versions of Google’s red map markers positioned in public spaces; portraits generated from search results. An introduction by editor Domenico Quaranta as well as essays by science fiction writer Bruce Sterling, art critics, and fellow artists guide readers through a wonderfully skewed version of reality under the influence of the internet, something Sterling refers to as Bartholl’s “self-created twilight zone.”

  1. obviously like your website but you need to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I find it very bothersome to inform the reality then
    again I will certainly come back again.
