Bettina Pousttchi is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice often attempts to slightly shift our views on the structures and systems in our lives that we take for granted. For her famous series “World Time Clock” (2016), Pousttchi traveled the world for eight years and photographed 24 public clocks in just as many time zones, capturing each clock at 1:55 p.m. Displayed together, the images represent what Pousttchi calls an “imaginary global synchronism,” where the scale of the globe is at once flattened and made tangible. The series has been displayed in its entirety at museums around the world. Pousttchi also often manipulates objects associated with public spaces—such as crowd barriers, street bollards, and bicycle racks—erasing their original use and transforming them into new, thought-provoking forms. Pousttchi participated in the Venice Biennale in 2003 and won the Wolfsburg Art Prize in 2014.
