The work of Thorsten Goldberg (b. Dinslaken 1960; lives and works in
Berlin) represents an important contribution to the evolution of art in the
public sphere, whose classical localization he suspends by removing crucial determinants in favor of a utopian dimension. 54° 4 min., too, tells the story of a journey to places that embody the yearnings of our time. By proffering definitions of places that are as specific as they are deliberately incomplete, Goldberg unfolds the spectrum of his artistic reflection before us: from the historic Land of Cockaigne to the virtual palm-lined beach adorning a screensaver, from directions guiding us along the 54th parallel to far-off islands and the radiant cloud we might follow to reach remote paradises. The exhibition, which will be on display at three exhibition institutions in Germany and Poland, represents the first major retrospective of the oeuvre of this multimedia artist. The book offers glimpses of Goldberg’s work in several media; it portrays realized as well as unrealized works in public space, objects, photographs, drawings, and video works.
