:::::: ZKM EXHIBITIONS :::

bit international. [Nove] tendencije: Computer and Visual Research, Zagreb 1961-1973 :: In the exhibition bit international, the ZKM turns its attention to one of the most important artistic movements of the 1960s, which was of enormous influence in its day, but has sunk into near oblivion today: New Tendencies. Beginning with an exhibition of concrete and constructive art in Zagreb in 1961, New Tendencies quickly developed to a dynamic movement triggering an international Op-Art boom. Art became »visual research« - The exhibition runs until February 22nd, 2009 ⁄⁄ www.zkm.de/bit

OUR LITERAL SPEED. DER PERFORMATIVE DISKURS :: »OUR LITERAL SPEED« manifests the imperatives that materialize the theoretical and the pedagogical.
