Intersections artist Bettina Pousttchi presents Double Monuments

Bettina Pousttchi is a Berlin-based artist working in photography, video, and sculpture. Born in Mainz, Germany in 1971, Pousttchi trained at the Runstackademie Dusseldorf and participated in the Independent Study Program at the Whitney Museum in New York in the 1990s. Her work investigates both the constructed nature and fleeting qualities of memory by transforming architecture through photography and sculpture, and constructing monuments as indicators of history and containers of memory. 

Intersections Contemporary Art Projects

Intersections logo

Intersections is a series of contemporary art projects that explores—as the title suggests—the intriguing intersections between old and new traditions, modern and contemporary art practices, and museum spaces and artistic interventions. Whether engaging with the permanent collection or diverse spaces in the museum, the projects suggest new relationships with their own surprises.

Many of the projects also riff on the nontraditional nature of the museum’s galleries, sometimes activating spaces that are not typical exhibition areas with art produced specifically for those locations.
