Nam June Paik’s experimental, innovative, yet playful work has had a profound influence on today’s art and culture. He pioneered the use of TV and video in art and coined the phrase ‘electronic superhighway’ to predict the future of communication in the internet age. This major exhibition will be a mesmerising riot of sights and sounds. It brings together over 200 works from throughout his five-decade career – from robots made from old TV screens, to his innovative video works and all-encompassing room-sized installations such as the dazzling Sistine Chapel 1993.
In einem Zeitraum von fast vierzig Jahren schafft Michael Bielicky innovative Arbeiten in den Bereichen Fotografie, Video sowie netzbasierter Installation. Die Ausstellung »Perpetuum mobile« bietet erstmals einen Überblick über sein vielfältiges Gesamtwerk. ZKM věnuje výstavou Perpetum mobile první celkový pohled na dílo Michaela Bielického, jenž před téměř čtyřiceti lety propadl tehdy nově vznikajícímu médiu založenému na fotografickém obraze, videu, síťovém propojení světa pomocí rozvýjejících se technologií digitálního a telekomunikačního prostoru.

After the exhibitions showcasing Marcel Duchamp, René Magritte, André Derain and Henri Matisse, the Centre Pompidou continues its re-examination of key 20th century works by devoting a major exhibition to Francis Bacon. The last major French exhibition of this artist’s work was held in 1996 at the Centre Pompidou. More than twenty years later, Bacon : Books and Painting presents paintings dating from 1971, the year of the retrospective event at the national galleries of the Grand Palais, to his final works in 1992. Didier Ottinger is the curator of this innovative exploration of the influence of literature in Francis Bacon’s painting.
To mark the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus, Die Neue Sammlung is having an exhibition that discusses the significance of this pioneering reform design college today. Simultaneously, Die Neue Sammlung is taking the opportunity to highlight its own historical links to Bauhaus. For the first time the museum will showcase historical objects from its own holdings in Munich. In cooperation with the artist Tilo Schulz an installation is realized interlocking 40 historical objects and responses to them by five contemporary artists. Invitations have been taken up by designer Ayzit Bostan, poet Barbara Köhler, architect Anupama Kundoo, composer Junya Oikawa, and artist Sofie Thorsen to explore one Bauhaus object and develop an independent work of their own.
