÷ Resonances. The electromagnetic bodies project :: The exhibition »Resonances« features a selection of works by artists who have immersed themselves in the phenomenon of electromagnetism, and examines the differences and similarities between »organic« sensors and man-made anorganic artifacts as well as the impact of the invisible yet measurable forces on our sensory perception [more]

÷ Making Things Public. Atmospheres of Democracy :: Building on the much acclaimed exhibition »Iconoclash« by the same curators (ZKM 2002), the exhibition aspires to nothing less than to renew what constitutes an art show as well as ways of thinking about politics and methods of establishing new forms of collaboration between artists and academics [more]

The exhibition draws on the ZKM_Collection and selected loans in presenting an historical outline of this radical change in the fine arts, music, design, and architecture [more]
