The Economy of Time and Luck Along With Other Stress Factors

Malte Bartsch (born 1984 in Braunschweig; lives and works in Berlin) sculptures, installations, and video works are concerned with notions of time, coincidence (temporal aspects), luck, and also with what comes after such momentariness. Is it stress? Or do we long for more? Bartsch — the Meisterschüler of Manfred Pernice and a graduate of Olafur Eliasson's Institute for Spatial Experiments — explores these conun-drums by rebuilding machines, designing mechanisms, and providing physically measurable facts. In doing so, he approaches his works from the viewer’s perspective. With experimental arrangements, Bartsch transports the acceleration of everyday life and the ubiquitous, hectic rush of our late-capitalist society into the showroom—the artist connects memory, present experience, and the potential of the future to form unified occurrences.

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 texts by Kristin Brüggemann, David Khalat, Marcus Körber, Manfred Pernice, Julian Pörksen, Bernard Vienat and Katharina Weinstock.
