Vertrautes Terrain - Contemporary Art in/about Germany :: The project Vertrautes Terrain – Contemporary Art in / about Germany conceives itself, namely, as a resonance space within which the differentiated examination of works by international artists, who reflect on Germany in distinctly different ways as a historical-, art-, and social sphere can be carried out. The focus placed on the German context refers to an "imaginary cartography", which seeks to trace those concerns dealing with the form and content, the symptoms and the virulent features in art as set against the backdrop of their socio-political presence - The exhibition runs until September 21, 2008 ⁄⁄ www.vertrautes-terrain.de

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

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

The Strong Consumer :: In the exhibition, along with seven parade sculptures, Ikebana works by Stephanie Senge will be shown. The artist learned the art of Ikebana floral design in Japan and uses its principles to make products from materials bought at discount department stores. Her aim is to give a certain value to mass-consumed articles that are otherwise not highly regarded. In this, the technique of Ikebaba ennobles the consumer goods - The exhibition runs until June 22, 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
