÷ »Short Cuts: Beauty« ZKM's International Competition for Electroacoustic Music :: »Short Cuts: Beauty« should deliver an insight into the multiple concepts of beauty from different cultures. The competition is directed towards musically creative people throughout the world dealing with computer music. There is no age limit. The ZKM looks for short pieces of 3 to 8 minutes in duration. The works should represent the artists' concepts of beauty through three of their favourite sounds which can be arranged in any way. The artists are invited to give their fantasy free reign. They can use everyday sounds, voices, instrumental sounds and whatever they like. It is planned to present all submissions throughout the without borders festival from July 14 until 30, 2006. There will be special audio stations at the ZKM Karlsruhe and the festival's media center at the Theaterhaus Stuttgart [more]

÷ »Fair Assembly« - A Project Curated by Steve Dietz :: Artists and other interested parties are invited to submit projects to the Fair Assembly database. The open database is not about transparency, however. Not only is this impossible - its protocols and machine-readable languages are literally meaningless to humans unless mediated - but it is undesirable. Not everything will be accepted into the database but only some things - projects that are matters of concern for Making Things Public. The following questions are asked: Is your project - or was it - an innovation? Does it lie at the intersection of information gathering and opinion making? Does it make a difference, no matter how small, to the question of democracy? Can it be »exported,« at least conceptually, for use or comparison in other domains other than the one for which it is currently designed?
Fair Assembly was curated by Steve Dietz for Making Things Public.

÷ 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]

÷ Screening War - On the representation of war in video art :: The Screening War exhibition looks at the war representation strategies to be found in video art and asks whether texts can be written that run counter to the communication of information by pictorial means. In addition to the presentation of current works the exhibition comprises a survey of the way in which war has been reflected in video art since the 1970s [more]
