Image on t-shirt. Based on: Man Ray, Long Distance, 1926
“I tried to get this image printed on a t-shirt but the company called, was very confused and even thought their software was having a bug. We are trained to think very much in categories and only can imagine the expected. dada is a great example for a movement breaking boundaries of all kinds, tossing the unexpected over the audience. startup approved! Let s make a t-shirt!” Aram Bartholl, 2016
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 Museum of Modern Art NY, the Pace Gallery NY and London’s Hayward Gallery as well as conducting countless workshops, talks and performances internationally. Bartholl lives and works in Berlin.
