New Exhibition: The Museum of Time-Based Art. Music and Museum - Film and Museum :: The ZKM has therefore decided not only to present music and sound art in temporary exhibitions, which it has done from the beginning but to also show these in its permanent collection. Thus, in its media museum, commencing from the 22nd of July 2006, the ZKM will install several permanent spaces exclusively dedicated to music. In the media museum, music as a medium will enjoy equal status to all the other media exhibited there. In July the ZKM will be opening its museum cinema program too. Our program has as its focal point those films which straddle the divide between the documentary and the fictional, including the classical avant-garde, and is structured in two parts. Belonging to the opening program are Agnès Varda, Artavazd Peleschjan, Andrei Ujica, Peter Weibel, Werner Schimanovich, Raymond Depardon [more]

÷ Art video »twists and turns« installed on the UNIQA tower LED media facade, Vienna :: From twilight into the night on the wide-meshed net of LED picture elements receiving video data, an interplay over time between the architecture and the electronic data feed evolves. Displayed is the video work of the artist group Holger Mader, Alexander Stublic, Heike Wiermann associated with the State Academy for Design Karlsruhe [HfG]. The building does not only serve as a screen or message-board, as is commonly the case with electronic billboards, but becomes an integral part of the urban landscape as abstract, constantly modulating architectural form. At first, the electronic data corresponds to the architectural structure of the tower, but during the course of its choreography, repeatedly detaches itself from the concrete shape of the building, establishing new spaces which dynamically interweave. Ever changing virtual layers are added to the building facade [more: Video (QuickTime)]

÷ 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]
