Based in Berlin, Roth's practice visualizes and archives typically unseen aspects of rapidly changing communication technologies. Through a range of media from sculpture to websites, the work addresses the personal and cultural effects surrounding these changes and the role of individual agency within the media landscape.
Roth is the co-founder of the Graffiti Research Lab and the Free Art & Technology Lab (F.A.T. Lab) and his work has been exhibited at the Tate and Whitechapel Gallery and is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art NYC.
Throughout the run of Red Lines, various UK museums and galleries have temporarily installed Red Lines in their public spaces and in doing so, made themselves a "node" on the Red Lines network.
Red Lines is available to anyone, anywhere for a year as well as on display at the participating institutions seen above. Head to redlines.network to set it up in your home or workplace.
Evan Roth's Red Lines with Landscapes: Portugal, is presented in Lisbon.
Roth has selected late 19th century paintings from the collection of the Museo Nacional De Arte Contemporânea Do Chiado to be presented alongside Red Lines. At the same time as the exhibition opens, new videos of the Portuguese cable landing location in Lisbon will enter the Red Lines network.
