Nam June Paik Art Center (Director: Jinsuk Suh) in association with Chronus Art Center in Shanghai, China (CAC) and Center for Art and Media in Karlsruhe, Germany (ZKM) will host the international collaborative exhibition the Three Rooms project Edge of Now. The exhibition to be held from July 12 to September 16 will provide an opportunity to verify different perspectives and attitudes of the artists exploring technological media-based art.

The Three Rooms project, co-organized by Nam June Paik Art Center, CAC and ZKM in the form of competition, is aimed to discover and support new media artists in Korea, China and Germany. This year, 15 members of the recommendation committee recommended 30 new artists and Kim Heecheon, Yang Jian and Verena Friedrich, who have presented new sensibilities and views in this era of changing technologies and media, are finally selected through screening processes. This project to provide the selected artists with the opportunity to showcase their works internationally in exhibitions on tour at CAC and ZKM is differentiated from other competitions with regional limitations. The participating artists present their own senses and views of the reality changed by technological media by offering a contemporary perspective on the classical representation, the awareness of the media that have become part of our daily life and our perception at the boundary between online and offline respectively. We hope the exhibition Edge of Now will inspire us to think about where we are now and envision the future at the "edge of now," just at the moment to move into the future.

About ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, Germany
As a place expanding the original tasks of the museum, the Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe(ZKM) is a unique cultural institution worldwide. Founded in 1989 as a museum with the mission of continuing the classical arts into the digital age, today it is a house of all media and genres, a house of both spatial arts such as painting, photography and sculpture and time-based arts such as film, video, media art, music, dance, theater and performance. This is why it is sometimes called the “electronic or digital Bauhaus”—an expression that is traced back to the founding director Heinrich Klotz. Under the direction of Peter Weibel, the ZKM has developed into an interactive and performative center of the arts that creates new relationships between art and the public
