Sound Art @ Het Apollohuis
Archive exhibition and CD presentation
"Sound Art @ Het Apollohuis"
→ Information auf Deutsch
The archive exhibition is a dedication to almost two decades of the work of Het Apollohuis, based in Eindhoven / Netherlands. It was here that artists were presented in numerous exhibitions and installations, performances and concerts, and where art-theoretical debates were carried out in the years between 1980 and 1997. The house was to become an important center of the avant-garde in art and music under the directorship of its founders Paul and Hélène Panhuysen.
The Het Apollohuis Archive, comprising numerous sound, text and image documents, has been developed, documented and preserved at the ZKM since 2009. In the summer of 2011, with Sound Art @ Het Apollohuis the first CD of the new series Edition ZKM milestones was released by WERGO. Previously unreleased extracts of recordings of concerts and performances by important artists from the entire period of Het Apollohuis' existence are now available.
The accompanying program to the exhibition:
In August and September the CD can be listened to via stream at Degem Webradio @ ZKM, Slot "ZKM | Musik aktuell".
On October 22, at around 6 pm, the two founders of Het Apollohuis, Paul and Hélène Panhuysen, will be guests at the exhibition, and are scheduled to participate in a workshop discussion at the ZKM.
