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.

Rome - Open Painting. The Material Picture in Italy During the 1950s and 1960s :: n Italy, during the 1950s, an artistic dissolution and destruction of panel painting was initiated. One began separating panel from painting, a development which was to have far-reaching consequences for art history. A number of artists ranging from Alberto Burri to Lucio Fontana abandoned the path of abstraction. They distanced themselves from general tendencies, which predominated in the Abstract Expressionism of the New York scene during the 1950s. One not only rejected the portrayal of the object world but also the materials of painting, namely, of oil and canvas - The exhibition runs until August 24th, 2008 ⁄⁄ more

High Times, Hard Times: New York Painting 1967-1975 :: In the late 1960s the New York art world was, famously, an exciting place to be. New mediums such as performance and video art were developing, and sculpture was quickly expanding in many different directions. Recapturing the liveliness and urgency of this important moment, High Times, Hard Times: New York Painting 1967-1975 delves into the field of experimental abstract painting at a time when it was beginning to be pressed to its limits - The exhibition runs until June 1st, 2008 ⁄⁄ more

OUR LITERAL SPEED. DER PERFORMATIVE DISKURS :: »OUR LITERAL SPEED« manifests the imperatives that materialize the theoretical and the pedagogical. No longer can we interpret forms of academic and artistic professionalism as neutral, abstract backgrounds to the aesthetic and performative. These activities have produced their own distinctive surfaces and materials: the »aesthetic« has become discursive and »discourse« has become aesthetic - The exhibition runs until May 25th, 2008 ⁄⁄ more

World of Games: reloaded :: This Exhibition is an extension of the previous presentation of video and computer game 'classics' of recent years, which from now on is to be updated at regular intervals - Permanent Exhibition ⁄⁄ more
