Book Launch: Aram Bartholl's 'The Speed Book'April 12, 2012 At Eyebeam
On April 12 from 6PM–8PM, Eyebeam will host the official US ‘The Speed Book’ launch party of Aram Bartholl’s first artist monograph. The event, which occurs in tandem with eteam’s project launch, will feature:
- Aram Bartholl, in town from Berlin introducing and signing the book.
- Brad Troemel, will give a talk about “Creative Destruction”, based on his essay he wrote for ‘The Speed Book’!
- Lindsay Howard, Eyebeam’s Curatorial Fellow, in conversation with Aram Bartholl
- HENNESSY YOUNGMAN and DJ AJ Slim spinning beatzZ and rocking the house!
Eyebeam alumni Aram Bartholl’s work explores the power structures, social systems, cultural innovations, inner dynamics, languages, and products shaping our age. This publication, his first comprehensive monograph, offers entry into an oeuvre in which space and cyberspace mingle with and mangle one another in a realm that uses as little technology as possible yet still speaks in a digital language.
Aram Bartholl: The Speed Book is edited by Domenico Quaranta, designed by Manuel Bürger, and published by Gestalten, with essays by Josephine Bosma, Jonah Brucker-Cohen, Jon Cates, Lindsay Howard, Alessandro Ludovico, Evan Roth, Bruce Sterling, and Brad Troemel.
This event is powered by Société Perrier and Pernod Absinthe.
