Mischa Kuball. ReMix/Broca II (Letters/Numbers)

The multimedia installation ReMix/Broca II (Letters/Numbers) will open the international exhibition tour of the work of Mischa Kuball (*1959), a light and media artist from Düsseldorf, Germany, at the ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art. Kuball has worked conceptually with light for more than 20 years and in a unique way has linked light with social and political statements. Within his complex and multifarious work, the pieces that confront human communication form a specific concentration. Presented for the first time is the new, extensive multimedia installation ReMix/Broca II (Letters/Numbers). With this work, Kuball refers to the Brocas area of the brain, which forms language capability and thereby the basic conditions for human communication.

Curators: Andreas F. Beitin, Gregor Jansen

(My Gene, It has Five Corners …)
Caris/Herbold/Horlitz/PerZan/Roth/Voss-Andreae

Since the beginning of modern times a mutual fascination has flowered between the creativity of art and the measurable results of science. The visualization of complex scientific facts stimulates mutual confrontation and often fosters a growth in knowledge. The ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art offers insight into this multidisciplinary realm of art science. Parallel to the exhibition by Mischa Kuball, various works will be shown by artists Gerard Caris, Wolfgang Herbold, Andreas Horlitz, Karsten K. Panzer PerZan, Hermann Josef Roth and Julian Voss-Andreae, works that illuminate the areas of art and science from various artistic perspectives.

Curators: Andreas F. Beitin, Gregor Jansen
