The 54º 4 min. catalogue tells about imaginary trips to paradisiacal worlds and places marked by nostalgia. It presents the rich body of work of a specialist in art in public spaces, Thorsten Goldberg, a German artist living in Berlin. The book contains texts by the art critics Martin Hentasch and Eulalia Domanowska, analyzing the extremely varied works of this German artist, including a light installation on the Oberbaum Bridge, a cloud in the courtyard of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Consumer Protection in Berlin, and a project along a tram line in Bergen, Norway. The Director of the Łaźnia Centre for Contemporary Art, Jadwiga Charzyńska, will show a project the artist has designed for Gdańsk.
Thorsten Goldberg’s work represents an important contribution to the development of art in public spaces, and has included a wide range of artistic reflections, from a utopian Land of Milk and Honey and virtual voyages to distant islands, to clouds that the artist brings to the ground.
