23–25 February 2007
Film festival in the ZKM_Media Theater, admission € 5/3/2
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 and
Woody Vasulka, and Peter Weibel.
The exhibition will offer 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.
Accompanying the exhibition ZKM will organize a weekend film festival
with works by the participating artists.
