The exhibit aims to display, in a systematic confrontation, three great clashes about representation - about its necessity, sanctity, and power - in the domains of science, art, and religion.

Making things public : atmospheres of democracy( Book )

21 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Back to things!"--This is the new motto of what Bruno Latour and Peter Weibel call an "object-oriented democracy." For the more than 100 writers, artists, and philosophers assembled in this groundbreaking editorial and curatorial project, politics is not just a profession, sphere, or system, but a concern for things. Yet though the very word "republic" (res publica) is already full of "things"--things made public - it is these same things that are always forgotten. Through more than 900 illustrations and over 100 essays, this collection scarches for democracy beyond the official sphere of professional politics, and explores public assemblies too often left out of a narrowly-defined discourse: laboratories, assembly lines, supermarkets, trade rooms, courts of law, bureaucratic institutions, churches, and natural resources such as rivers and climates." "This collection itself presents a significant public assembly, joining such prominent thinkers as Richard Rorty, Simon Schaffer, Peter Galison, and Peter Sloterdijk with the likes of Shakespeare, Swift, La Fontaine, and Melville. Ranging from the distant past to the troubled present, this collective effort examines the atmospheric conditions in which things are made public, and reinvests political representation with the materiality it has been lacking. This book, and the ZKM show that it accompanies, aims to trigger new political passions and interests in a time when people need, more than ever, new ways to have their voices heard."--Jacket
The global contemporary and the rise of new art worlds by Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The geography of the visual arts changed with the end of the Cold War. Contemporary art was no longer defined, exhibited, interpreted, and acquired according to a blueprint drawn up in New York, London, Paris, or Berlin. The art world distributed itself into art worlds. With the emergence of new art scenes in Asia and the Middle East and the explosion of biennials, the visual arts have become globalized as surely as the world economy has. This book offers a new map of contemporary art's new worlds. The Global Contemporary and the Rise of New Art Worlds documents the globalization of the visual arts and the rise of the contemporary over the last twenty years. Lavishly illustrated, with color throughout, it tracks developments ranging from exhibition histories and the rise of new art spaces to art's branding in such emerging markets as Hong Kong and the Gulf States. Essays treat such subjects as curating after the global turn; art and the migration of pictures; the end of the canon; and new strategies of representation."--Publisher's website
Future cinema : the cinematic imaginary after film by Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie (Karlsruhe)( Book )

16 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout the history of cinema, a radical avant-garde has existed on the fringes of the film industry. A great deal of research has focused on the pre- and early history of cinema, but there has been little speculation about a future cinema incorporating new electronic media. Electronic media have not only fundamentally transformed cinema but have altered its role as a witness to reality by rendering "realities" not necessarily linked to documentation, by engineering environments that incorporate audiences as participants, and by creating event-worlds that mix realities and narratives in forms not possible in traditional cinema. This hybrid cinema melds montage, traditional cinema, experimental literature, television, video, and the net. The new cinematic forms suggest that traditional cinema no longer has the capacity to represent events that are themselves complex configurations of experience, interpretation, and interaction." "This book, which accompanies an exhibition organized by the ZKM Institute for Visual Media, explores the history and significance of pre-cinema and of early experimental cinema, as well as the development of the unique theaters in which "immersion" evolved. Drawing on a broad range of scholarship, it examines the shift from monolithic Hollywood spectacles to works probing the possibilities of interactive, performative, and net-based cinemas. The post-cinematic condition, the book shows, has long roots in artistic practice and influences every channel of communication."--BOOK JACKET

Global activism : art and conflict in the 21st century( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Today political protest often takes the form of spontaneous, noninstitutional, mass action. Mass protests during the Arab Spring showed that established systems of power - in that case, the reciprocal support among Arab dictators and Western democracies - can be interrupted, at least for a short moment in history. These new activist movements often use online media to spread their message. Mass demonstrations from Tahrir Square in Cairo to Taksim Square in Istanbul show the power of networked communication to fuel "performative democracy" - at the center of which stands the global citizen. Art is emerging as a public space in which the individual can claim the promises of constitutional and state democracy. Activism may be the first new art form of the twenty-first century. global aCtIVISm (the capitalized letters form the Latin word civis, emphasizing the power of citizens) describes and documents politically inspired art - global art practices that draw attention to grievances and demand the transformation of existing conditions through actions, demonstrations, and performances in public space. Essays by leading thinkers -- including Noam Chomsky, Antonio Negri, Peter Sloterdijk, and Slavoj Žižek - consider the emerging role of the citizen in the new performative democracy. The essays are followed by images of art objects, illustrations, documents, and other material (first shown in an exhibition at ZKM Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe) as well as case studies by artists and activists

Molecular aesthetics by Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie Karlsruhe( Book )

14 editions published in 2013 in 3 languages and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thanks to advances in molecular science and microscopy, we can visualize matter on a nanoscale, and structures not visible to the naked eye can be visualized and characterized. The fact that technology allows us to transcend the limits of natural perception and see what was previously unseeable creates a new dimension of aesthetic experience and practice: molecular aesthetics. This book, drawing on an exhibit and symposium at ZKM/Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, documents aesthetic developments in what Félix Guattari called the 'molecular revolution.' Just as artists in the Bauhaus movement began to use such industrial materials as metal, Plexiglas, and alloys as raw materials, artists today have access to new realms of the molecular and nano. The industrial aesthetic of machinery and material has been transformed into an aesthetic of media and molecules. Molecular Aesthetics suggests ways in which art can draw inspiration from the molecular sciences--and ways in which science can use art to make experimental results more intelligible and comprehensible. The authors of the essays collected in the book discuss the creation of molecules of remarkable beauty and the functional properties that stem from a few geometrical principles of molecular design; address the history of molecular structure representation; examine the meaning of molecular aesthetics for scientists; and compare chemical structures to artworks"--Provided by publisher
Mapping spaces : networks of knowledge in 17th century landscape painting by Mapping spaces( Book )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ZKM throws new light on 17th century landscape painting. Comparable to modern satellite surveying (GPS), true to scale landscape representation is also indebted to the interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge: the alliance of geodesists, mathematicians, instrument makers and painters. Artists had designed modern surveying systems long before new media drew on images from outer space. The exhibition "Mapping Spaces" examines, for the first time ever on this scale, the influence of early modern guide books in geography, the science of surveying and the construction of fortification on Dutch painting around 1650. The prelude to the project, developed at the University of Trier, is Pieter Snayers' large-format depiction of historical battle scenes, in which maps and landscape paintings are projected over one another so as to document the most recent developments in modern engineering, ballistics and the fortification construction. Over 220 exhibits, among them paintings, surveying instruments, graphics devices, books, maps and globes drawn from the most important collections of works, such as from the Prado (Madrid), the Louvre (Paris), the Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam) or the Kunsthistorischen Museum (Vienna) testify to these new theses in pictorial science. The new mapping of an early modern area of knowledge is accompanied by contemporary works of art that thematize the influence of technological developments on our present-day perception of space.--Museum website

Der ästhetische Imperativ : Schriften zur Kunst by Peter Sloterdijk( Book )

13 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in German and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In seinen Erkundungen berührt Peter Sloterdijk alle klassischen und modernen Gattungen der Künste, von der Musik bis zur Architektur, von der Kunst der Erleuchtung zur Kunst der Bewegung, vom Design zur Typografie. Er durchstreift alle Felder des Sichtbaren und Unsichtbaren, des Hörbaren und Unhörbaren - die historische Spannweite seiner Beobachtungen reicht von der Antike bis Hollywood. Indem Sloterdijk die ihm eigene Methode der Diskursverfremdung auf die Betrachtung von Kunstwerken und -gattungen ausweitet, erscheinen die beschriebenen Objekte in einem jäh veränderten Licht - und führt uns der Autor mit seiner wachen, streitbaren Zeitgenossenschaft weg, weit weg von den ausgetretenen Pfaden des Kunstkommentars. Die Beschäftigung des großen Philosophen mit den unterschiedlichsten Phänomenen des Ästhetischen - hier wird sie zur fröhlich-ernsten Arbeit an der Kunst und an den Künsten, am Ästhetischen höchstselbst
Ruth Vollmer 1961-1978 : thinking the line by Ruth Vollmer( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing from sources as diverse as Plato's philosophy of mathematics and Bernhard Riemann's non-Euclidean notion of space, she experimented freely with the many permutations of the sphere, from the circle, spiral and pseudosphere to the ephemeral soap bubble. Vollmer's mathematical formalism contributed substantially to the development of a new language of abstraction."--Publisher
