Composing for Percussion - A Workshop with Jean Geoffrey and Isao Nakamura :: The drums have developed and improved over the last one hundred years like no other group of instruments.

The internationally renowned percussionists Jean Geoffroy and Isao Nakamura will be introducing the various playing techniques and tonal possibilities of contemporary percussion music. The workshop draws on the composition classes of the Manheim, Stuttgart, Basel and Frankfurt academies of music ⁄⁄ more

The Discreet Charm of Technology. Arts in Spain :: Exploring the ambiguous relationship between art and technology, this exhibition suggests the existence of another form and another content inherent in the practice of media art. Technology as an instrument gives way to technique as a procedure that artists use to create visual poetics, sensory and formal explorations, and conceptual developments. The discreet charm of media art lies precisely in this potential to blaze new trails. Participating artists [among others]: Antoni Abad, Bressemer & Alia, Daniel Canogar, Salvador Dali & José Montes-Baquer, Equipo 57, Joan Fontcuberta, Dora García, Jodi, Enrique Marty, Victor Nubla, José Val del Omar, Wolf Vostell - The exhibition runs until February 15th, 2009 ⁄⁄ more

MAGNET. Thorbjørn Lausten's Visual Systems :: Visual arts have always endeavored to make the invisible visible. The Danish light and media artist Thorbjørn Lausten has been devoted for several years to the visualization of scientific data in the context of art, science, and media. Lausten's illustrations of digital readings become concrete "color films," which can be followed online via www.meteomag.dk - The exhibition runs until October 19th, 2008 ⁄⁄ more

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 October 12th, 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 January 6th, 2009 ⁄⁄ www.zkm.de/bit

YOU_ser: The Century of the Consumer :: This exhibition invites the visitor to become an integral part of the art works.

Artists [among others]: Giselle Beiguelman, Michal Bielicky, Norman Klein/ Andreas Kratky, Armin Linke, Catalina Ossa/ Enrique Rivera, PIPS:lab, Jill Scott, Susigames, The Orbitants, The SLatelliterates - The exhibition runs until August 30th, 2009 ⁄⁄ www.zkm.de/you
