÷ Exhibition: »Light Art from Artificial Light« :: Very few media have revolutionized and democratized our living space in the last hun-dred years as much as electrical light has. The most diverse areas of everyday life, of working life, consumption, media, etc., have transformed through artificial light - and so has art. Since the beginning of the last century, artificial light has increasingly illuminated ever more streets, shop windows, billboard signs and houses in an unprecedented abundance and form. The ZKM|Museum for Contemporary Art's spectacular exhibition offers the first presentation of the classical highlights of light art, and here, the most recent contemporary art reveals surprising references to earlier works. Artists [selected] László Moholy-Nagy, Thomas Wilfred, Zdenek Pesánek, ZERO, Gruppo T, Gruppo N, Dan Flavin, Bruce Nauman, Keith Sonnier, James Turrell, Mario Merz, François Morellet, Jenny Holzer, Cerith Wyn Evans, Jason Rhoades, Zaha Hadid, Tobias Rehberger, Steven Pippin, Olafur Eliasson [more]

÷ Video/economy - Distributions in Global Format :: Everyone knows that you buy pictures in galleries and perhaps photos as well. But how, for heavens sake, do you get your hands on art videos?

In some cases video tapes are treated like oil paintings, although just like music their purpose is none other than distribution. How can the financial needs for artists be reconciled with distribution in the art market? [more]

÷ Art & Language & Luhmann III - What work does the artwork do? :: From their beginnings in 1966, Art & Language have called the traditional concept of art into question and as a result of their modus operandi have largely been assigned to the category of concept art. Proceeding from Marxist and linguistic analyses, they have from the very outset radically opposed any variation of l'art pour l'art and individualist conceptions, their intention being to replace art objects by linguistic concepts [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]
