Britta Peters
Vortrag

Montag, 17. Oktober 2016, 19 Uhr

Anlässlich der Ausstellung von Aram Bartholl, möchten wir Sie zum Vortrag von Britta Peters einladen, Kuratorin von Skulptur Projekte Münster 2017.

Seit ihrer ersten Ausgabe 1977 haben sich die Skulptur Projekte Münster zu einer der weltweit wichtigsten Ausstellung von Kunst im öffentlichen Raum entwickelt. Ihr großzügiger Turnus von zehn Jahren macht die Skulptur Projekte nicht nur zu einem besonderen Ereignis, sondern auch zu einem Ort, an dem jenseits von Moden und Trends nach der Zeitgenossenschaft öffentlicher Kunst gefragt wird. Im Sommer 2017 sind zum fünften Mal internationale Künstlerinnen und Künstler eingeladen, an einem selbstgewählten Ort innerhalb der Stadt Münster ein Projekt zu realisieren. Ein gutes halbes Jahr vor der Eröffnung am 10. Juni 2017 gibt Kuratorin Britta Peters einen kurzen Einblick in den Stand der Planungen, um anschließend, anknüpfend an die aktuelle Ausstellung von Aram Bartholl, die Frage zu diskutieren, ob und wie die zunehmende Digitalisierung unseres Alltags
herkömmliche Vorstellungen von öffentlichem Raum verändert.

Britta Peters (*1967) arbeitet als Kunstkritikerin und freie Kuratorin. 2008-2011 leitete sie den Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof. 2012 kuratierte sie die Ausstellung „Demonstrationen. Vom Werden normativer Ordnungen“ im Frankfurter Kunstverein. 2014 gefolgt von dem Ausstellungsprojekt „Krankheit als Metapher. Das Irre im Garten der Arten“ an verschiedenen Orten in Hamburg.

Perhaps you are reading this text on your mobile device?.

Do you have your phone under control or does it have a grip on you in its grip?

The consequences of technological developments on our social lives and relationships is a central theme in the work of Aram Bartholl.

In the current exhibition, Bartholl looks into the digital everyday live. ‘Remind me later’ is a very well known term for us instantly recognisable to us as users. As a form of reflex and self-defence against the constant stream of new automatic updates, we immediately the click tap othe ‘Remind me later’ button has become a habitual immediate reaction.

Digitalisation can undoubtedly connect us, but can also produce alienation. Meet with friends? Spend time outdoors in nature? Remind me later. Often, the mobile phone is more captivating of attention than the person sitting opposite. The limitless possibilities of communication have more to offer than real life? Really?

Aram Bartholl investigates the social side effects of digitalisation, and examines their influence on our analogue lives. In doing so, his work often incorporates outdoor space and blends perceptions of the real and the virtual. His work in Arnsberg continues in this vein, with humour and great sensitivity.

Aram Bartholl was born in Bremen in 1972 and lives in Berlin. He is guest professor at the Kunstakademie in Kassel and at UCLA in Los Angeles.
