Description: 

The versatile communication channels are taken for granted these days, but how do they influence us? According to the paradigm change of media research Bartholl not just asks what man is doing with the media, but what media does with man. The tension between public and private, online and offline, technology infatuation and everyday life creates the core of his producing. In public interventions and public installations Bartholl examines which and how parts of the digital world can reach back into reality.

Aram Bartholl is a member of the Internet based artist group Free, Art & Technology Lab - F.A.T. Lab. Net politics, the DIY movement and the Internet development in general do play an important role in his work. Beside numerous lectures, workshops and performances he exhibited at MoMA Museum of Modern Art NY, The Pace Gallery NY, DAM Gallery Berlin and XPO Gallery Paris. Aram Bartholl lives and works in Berlin.
