:::::: EXHIBITIONS :::

Only until August 12 :: the name is BURROUGHS − Expanded Media ::
Such works as "Naked Lunch" or "The Soft Machine" are what made William S. Burroughs (1914-1997) world famous as an author. Far less known, by contrast, is that Burroughs, as a cross-media artist, also produced a comprehensive, varied body of work that no less experiments with audio tape, film and photography as it does with painting and collages. The exhibition "the name is BURROUGHS − Expanded Media" presents the author's artistic output in Germany for the first time. ⁄⁄ more

The ZKM | Media Museum presents the work of Dieter Meier, the multi-talented artist from Zurich, as well as his activity as director of film and video-clips. Meier’s artistic origins are characterized by radical and absurd-humorous situations, which have inspired him time and time again to direct confrontations with passers-by in public squares. ⁄⁄ more
