÷ percussion-surroundings :: Street traffic, machine sounds, conversations of passers-by—the dynamic soundscape of the modern metropolis has become second nature for us. Hannes Galette Seidl and Peter Gahn, guest artists at the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics, created a concert for percussion and electronics from this sound repertoire.

÷ The Global Challenge of Art Museums :: The postcolonial era confronts art museums with a change in art practice that had previously emerged only at biennials. In the meantime, this development has reached public museums including institutions focusing on contemporary art. Beyond the West, they are faced with the problem that in cultures, in which contemporary art has not yet solidly taken root, these museums nationalize. Whereas for artists, migration issues are at the forefront, for museums, the issue relevant for art's future is that of location. At the ZKM conference, anthropologists, curators, and theorists will search together for solutions that reach beyond the radius of the art market and the normal Western exhibition scene [more]

÷ Light Art from Artificial Light :: Very few media have revolutionized and democratized our living space in the last hundred 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]

÷ 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]
