LBBW Art Night at ZKM
ZKM | Media Museum
open until 9 pm, curator tour at 7 pm, admission € 5/3; film showing
in the ZKM_Media Theater at 8 pm, admission free
In the 1970s and 1980s, the Department of Media Study at the State University of New York
at Buffalo grew to become one of the most important media centers in the world.
Under the direction of Gerald O’Grady, the teaching staff included Hollis
Frampton, Paul Sharits, James Blue, Tony Conrad, Steina, Woody Vasulka,
and Peter Weibel.
The exhibition “MindFrames. Media
Study at Buffalo 1973–1990” offers the first
comprehensive insight into this groundbreaking art of the 1970s and 1980s,
which was so decisive for media art’s further
development and whose style remains influential today. The entire horizon of
aesthetic issues and solutions that came along with the introduction of the
technical image into art becomes available based on the example of the represented
artists and their individual positions.
7 pm, ZKM | Media Museum; admission: € 5/3

8 pm, ZKM_Media Theater; admission free
