Eyebeam is proud to host the official US launch party for "The Speed Book", Aram Bartholl's first artist monograph. The event will feature:
- Aram Bartholl in town from Berlin introducing and signing the book;
- Brad Troemel giving a presentation about "Creative Destruction", based on the 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 alum 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. The book is available for purchase in Gestalten's online store or at Eyebeam's bookstore.
