March 6: "Never Worry Again" - Artist talk by Aram Bartholl


On Monday, March 6th 2017 at 5:00pm, Bard College Berlin has the pleasure to host conceptual artist Aram Bartholl for a guest talk titled "Never Worry Again." The artist will be speaking about his artistic practice as well as sharing and discussing a wide range of recent works.

Aram Bartholl's work creates an interplay between internet, culture and reality. How do our taken-for-granted communication channels influence us? Bartholl asks not just what humans are doing with media, but what media is doing with humans. Tensions between public and private, online and offline, techno-lust and everyday life are at the core of his work and his public interventions and installations, often entailing surprisingly physical manifestations of the digital world, challenge our concepts of reality and incorporeality.
Bartholl has exhibited at MoMa and Pace Gallery in New York and Hayward Gallery in London, as well as conducted countless workshops, talks and performances internationally. He is currently a guest professor for Visual Communication and New Media at the Kunsthochschule Kassel. He is also one of this year's participating artists at Skulptur Projekte Münster (Sculpture Project Münster), an exhibition of sculptures in public places in the German city of Münster, held every ten years since 1977.
Bartholl lives and works in Berlin.

This talk is open to the public. Refreshments will be served afterwards.
