Measuring Time at Deutsches Haus

Measuring Time, a charming exhibit at Deutsches Haus at NYU began as part of the Chelsea Music Festival in June.  The show of 20 works by six artists ranges across woodcuts, photographs, drawings and mixed media, exploring themes of waiting, rhythm, and decay.

Regula Rūeg’s work focuses on crumbling walls, forgotten signs, and lost wall advertisements, which allow us to see how the built environment changes over time.

Bill Beirne’s work centers on public space and communication.  He’s known for his video installations and public performances, one of which is documented in the above photograph.

There’s more to see by these artists and the other four in the show, which is up until August 26th.  Deutsches Haus at NYU is at 42 Washington Mews, and is open Mon-Fri 10:00am to 8:30pm, Saturdays 10:00am to 4:00pm.  They also offer German language lessons (I’ve studied there) as well as public talks, readings and film screenings.
