÷ Exhibition :: The Hirsch-Index. The Art of Quotation ::

The exhibition The Hirsch-Index. "The Art of Quotation" at the ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art investigates the ways in which artistic creativity and strategies of artists have evolved over the foregoing decades. As part of the discourse on the claim to originality of works of art and the role of the author, numerous exhibitions took place during the 1970s that dealt with such topics as the original, the after-image, the quote and the copy. In view of a flood of images a new look into this theme seems essential and reasonable. [more]

÷ Performance :: impression, A−Z [2012] ::

The Japanese sound artist Akio Suzuki is one of the pioneers of the art form "Sound Art". Since the 1960s he has been analyzing selected sites for their acoustic attributes and develops the corresponding topographies. The highly focused occupation with the phenomenon of impulse and reverberation during the 1970s led to the development of his own instruments. One such instrument is the spiral-echo-instrument ANALAPOS-A. In the performance as part of the exhibition "Sound Art. Sound as a Medium of Art", Suzuki will play and elicit from this instrument a variety of sounds. Before the performance there will be a tour guided by Julia Gerlach at 3 p.m. [more]
