:::::: ZKM EXHIBITIONS :::

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

Vertrautes Terrain - Collectors' Choice :: The show Vertrautes Terrain – Collectors' Choice includes inventories drawn from the private collections that cooperate with the ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art, namely, those of Boros, Grässlin and the LBBW - The exhibition runs until February 28th, 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.

Olafur Eliasson: Your Spiral View :: After the outstanding success of his first large overview exhibition Surroundings Surrounded at the ZKM | Karlsruhe, in 2001, Olafur Eliasson returned once again to the ZKM | Media Museum with his large-format mirror object Your Spiral View. Always stepping the fine line between nature and technology, Eliasson's works encourage reflections on self-observation. In the magic looking glass of nature and self-observation, the visitors are able to advance into the border zone between knowledge and perception ⁄⁄ more

rosalie: HYPERION_Fragment :: With HYPERION_Fragment, and in addition to HELIOS (to be seen at the ZKM_Cube) another of rosalie's works is to be presented at the ZKM. The work was created as a collaborative project between the Stuttgart artist and the composer, Georg Friedrich Hass, on the occasion of the Donaueschingen Music Festival, in 2006. With its presentation at the ZKM_Foyer, it has now attained a new dimension but, at the same time, a new level of meaning as a unique example of light sculpture ⁄⁄ more
