Bettina Pousttchi works at the interface of sculpture, photography and architecture.

About

Her site-specific photographic interventions in the public space often occupy entire facades of buildings and reference the urban or historical context of a place. Pousttchi reflects the role of photography in the digital age and questions the relationship between memory and history. Her sculptures are an extension of her interest in the political and social structures of the urban fabric, often transforming objects from public space such as crowd barriers, street bollards or bicycle racks. The artist will present a selection of sculptures as well as a site-specific façade work at the entrance of the museum.

Bettina Pousttchi was born in Mainz in 1971. She studied at the Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf and completed the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York. In Berlin she is best known for her photo-installation Echo (2009/2010) on the façade of the Temporäre Kunsthalle. In recent years her work has been the subject of many solo exhibitions abroad, including at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC, the Arts Club of Chicago, the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C., the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas and Kunsthalle Basel.
