Deutsches Haus at NYU presents the exhibition “Motherboard” by visual artist Arnold Helbling. The exhibition features paintings and drawings and explores the hidden structures of our daily communication as if viewed through an X-ray machine. The site-specific installation on the ground floor is made up of lines and connection points of circuit boards and resembles a complex subway map of a futuristic city. Speech bubbles remind us of the simple human interactions requiring these complex electronic connections. An additional installation and paintings will be shown on the second floor.
The exhibition started on September 30 and will be on view through October 25.
Please join us for a reception with the artist on October 25, 6-8pm.
