÷ Timbre and Light Music :: Despite using techniques and material that would seem, from our point of view, rather outmoded and simple, the pioneers of film (represented in our current exhibition Light Art from Artificial Light), Ruttmann, Fischinger and Richter, were interested in setting medial synergies in motion: for instance Fischinger combines a film of the act of painting behind a pane of glass with music by Johann Sebastian Bach. Unexpected associations are also offered to the listener in the newly written compositions; the imaginative coupling of imagery and sound proves to stand on equal footing with the initial films themselves. The films scheduled for broadcast on ARTE, at the beginning of May, are those whose music was produced at ZKM [more]

÷ Citizen Animal. For an Improved Parliamentarism :: The symposium »Citizen Animal. For an improved Parliamentarism« concentrates itself to the problem of the relationship between the animal world and the human rights. Among the guests are internationally famous scientists, historians, philosophers, jurists, and writers invited to discuss the change in our attitudes towards an improved and extended theory of human rights. Although these questions aren’t necessarily new in themselves, the purpose is to discuss and rethink them to a higher degree of relevance and actuality [more]

÷ 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]

÷ 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]
[through 2007 | Media-Museum]

÷ 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]
[through 2007 | Media-Museum]

÷ Video/economy – Distributions in Global Format :: 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? Does the market dictate faith in the original or is there a lack of media distribution channels, such as an online offer, to make the video marketable as a reproducible expression of art outside the collector community? There are only a few distribution outlets worldwide that have taken up the task of hiring out or selling art videos and making a success of the job [more]
[Exhibition 12/1/2005 - 02/12/2006 | ZKM-Media Lounge, Admission free]

÷ Stephan von Huene - Border Crosser, Border Mover :: The exhibition »Stephan von Huene – Border Crosser, Border Mover« provides a deeper insight into von Huene's activities as a »pictorial scientist« [more]
