÷ »Nowy Wawilon:The New Babylon/Battle for Paris« - Silent film with live orchestral accompaniment :: The background to the plot is the suppression of the Paris Commune after France's defeat in the war against Prussia in 1870/71. The film emphasises the gulf between the bourgeoisie and the 'healthy' working class. Louise, a shop assistant in a department store called The New Babylon, meets a young soldier by the name of Jean. They fall in love but are separated after the French armies have been defeated and the workers continue their struggle under the Commune. Louise is on the side of the Commune. Jean, the son of a peasant, asks to be sent into action against the Commune and, after the workers have been defeated, he is made a member of the squad that executes Louise [more]

÷ 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]

÷ EXIT_Stepping Out of The Picture :: The exhibition marks the reintegration of the Museum for Contemporary Art into the ZKM. The collection's first thematic exhibition shows works from the Boros, FER, Froehlich, Grässlin, Weishaupt, and ZKM collections. It focuses on a complex and fascinating aspect of Western art in the second half of the 20th century: the farewell to the picture [more]

÷ 51:49 :: The fundamental concept behind the Exhibition »51:49« is that the idea of »direct democracy« is haunted by justifiable doubts about the referendum as a decision-making method: is it possible to reconcile popular demands for greater citizen involvement with the often unacceptable outcomes and consequences of such exercises? [more]

÷ Masterpieces of Media Art from the ZKM_Collection :: The exhibition presents a panorama of media art from its early days in the 1950s up to current net art, which no other museum in the world has to offer [more]

÷ The Algorithmic Revoluion and World of Games: reloaded :: Over the past 50 years, algorithmic decision-making processes have come very much to the fore as a result of the universal use of computers in all fields of cultural literacy - from architecture to music, from literature to the fine arts, and from transport to management. 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]
