Michael Kunze. Les Messieurs d'Avignon :: Michael Kunze's Les Messieurs d'Avignon are well-known great minds from the areas of art and philosophy at the end of 19th to the end of the 20th centuries. They are the »bad boys of modernity«, whom Kunze presents in over 60 pictures - from Friedrich Nietzsche to Michel Houellebecq. Common to them all is that they stand, each in his different way, strikingly aloof: although they cannot be imagined outside their time and place, they dodge or undermine the accepted idea of a strictly operating model of progress. This contradiction is the common theme of the presented collection - The exhibition runs until March 18th, 2007 ⁄⁄ more

MindFrames. Media Study at Buffalo 1973-1990 :: In the 1970s and 1980s, the Department of Media Study at the State University of New York at Buffalo became one of the places of teaching and mediating, in the area of Media Art, developing into what was perhaps to the most influential school for media in the twentieth century. Teaching there under the leadership of the founder Gerald O'Grady were the (meanwhile canonized) structuralist, avant-garde filmmakers Hollis Frampton, Tony Conrad, and Paul Sharits, documentary filmmaker James Blue, video artists 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 exhibition runs until March 25th, 2007 ⁄⁄ www.zkm.de/mindframes_e/

Lisa Schmitz. InVerse Library :: Over the past several years, Lisa Schmitz has developed a unique method for photographing libraries. She turns all of the books around so that only the white paper is visible rather than the book spine. She covers all of the printed papers with blank paper. She erases, as it were, the writing, the essence of the books, and thereby negates the archive, the entity of the library - The exhibition runs until February 4th, 2007 ⁄⁄ more
FASTER! BIGGER! BETTER! light. Signet works of the collections :: Sylvie Fleury's neon writing supplies the title for the presentation of our museum's new collections. Signet works of our present and recently acquired private collections will be displayed on all three levels of the atriums 1 and 2 - The exhibition runs until May 01, 2007 ⁄⁄ more

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 - The exhibition runs until April 2007 ⁄⁄ more
