The German Consulate General Co-Presents:
Resident Malte Bartsch will present some of his works and launch his newly released book Auto Modus, published by Distanz. The catalog Auto Modus is a tour of Bartsch’s two-part exhibition at the Städtische Galerie in Wolfsburg and in Braunschweig; it is the first documentation of the artist’s work in book form.
With his interventions and installations, Malte Bartsch transforms the intended modus operandi of everyday objects and buildings. For example, he has turned a refrigerator inside out so that it cools its surroundings, switched street lamps on and off to be used as reading lights, and installed a slot machine in front of a museum to change it into an after-hours disco.
This event is made possible with the financial support of the German Consulate General New York. This program is also supported, in part, by Danish Arts Foundation; Hartfield Foundation; New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council; New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF); VIA Art Fund; and William Talbott Hillman Foundation.
