MICHAEL BEUTLER: MOBY DICK. Ed. by Sabeth Buchmann et al. Hamburger Banhof, Berlin, 2018. Published by Spector Books, Leipzig. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 208 pp. 27 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783959050289 In English.
Due date: Spring 2018. Publisher's description: Moby Dick -- the white whale of Herman Melville's classic novel -- gives its name to the publication accompanying Berlin-based installation artist Michael Beutler's (b. 1976) solo exhibition at the Hamburger Bahnhof, Museum fur Gegenwart, Berlin. In this work-in-progress installation, Beutler transforms the historical hall into a "museum workshop" with light metal grills, paper surfaces and sections of fencing changing the old station's striking iron-skeleton structure into an openended experimental design. The two-part slip-cased exhibition catalog documents the process while the exhibition is open; the second volume will be produced once it closes. The creation process of Buetler's installation will be made visible step by step, and visitors can follow the different "phases of construction" from beginning to end with books in hand. Michael Beutler's art interventions inhabit and transform spaces and are intended to be understood as reactions to architectural and social structures, as well as specific situations at each site.
