:::::: ZKM EVENTS :::

Diamond Grid Images vs Theodor W. Adorno's Aesthetic Theory :: Theodor W. Adorno understood art as countering empirical reality. A high amount of natural-science empirical knowledge demonstrably flowed into the paintings by Hermann J. Roth. Is that a contradiction? The lecture by Lothar Rumold (wood sculptor, philologist, and philosopher) will be complemented with demonstrations by Hermann J. Roth on the 'chemical content' of his diamond grid paintings ⁄⁄ more

:::::: ZKM EXHIBITIONS :::

Robert Wilson. Video Portraits :: Although Robert Wilson refuses to interpret his works, he gladly takes on the task of interpretation when it has to do with personalities. He created his first portraits of important personalities, such as Louis Aragon, Pontus Hultén, and Helene Rochas already in the 1970s. Wilson has concentrated all of his experiences as worldwide celebrated visual and object artist, as stage designer and director, as choreograph and curator in his video portraits since 2004, as the technological possibilities of High Definition television allow him to differentiate the wealth of his pictorial and stage languages - The exhibition runs until August 22nd, 2010 ⁄⁄ more

Jürgen Klauke. Aesthetic Paranoia :: In his photographs Jürgen Klauke contemplates in austerely minimal to excessive, sometimes also surreal scenes, the basic conditions of paranoid existence. Using quotidian materials as a means of staging his photos, he achieves a concentrated look at the absurdity of life and the systematic collisions between subject and system, stimulus and reaction. As one of the seminal photo and media artists in Germany, Jürgen Klauke has achieved pioneering art work in the area of Body Art and critical confrontation with socially normed gender identities and social patterns of behavior - The exhibition runs until October 3rd, 2010 ⁄⁄ more

Katrin Jakobsen: alles wird gut. :: In "alles wird gut." the media artist and photographer presents videos, mixed media installations, photographs, as well as a documentary poster wall with which she aims to draw attention to the various aspects of sexual abuse of children.

With these miniature spaces, as well as her guerilla art actions in the public space, the artists forces beholders to look carefully - The exhibition runs until July 25th, 2010 ⁄⁄ more
