Bettina Pousttchi


Bettina Pousttchi (b. 1971 in Mainz, living in Berlin) works with photography, video and sculpture and predominantly addresses topics such as the perception of time and the setting of boundaries. Pousttchi’s objects are often taken out of the public space and regrouped into sculptures, which have references both to everyday life as well as to art history. Thus, road barriers or bollards become new abstract forms that only subliminally refer to limits or limit experiences. In 2014, Pousttchi received the art prize of the city of Wolfsburg. Her works were shown in exhibitions including Nasher Sculpture Center Dallas (2014); Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg (2014); Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt/Main (2012); Kunsthalle Basel (2011); Kunstmuseum St. Gallen (2010, 2009); Temporäre Kunsthalle, Berlin (2009); 53rd Venice Biennale (2009); Kunstverein Hanover (2009); Kunstmuseum Thun (2009); Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin (2008); Von der Heydt Kunsthalle, Wuppertal (2007); Dortmunder Kunstverein (2005); Württembergischer Kunstverein, Stuttgart (2003).
For Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Pousttchi created a new series of small glazed ceramics.
