Reset Modernity! (Exhibition Opening)

with the modules »Territorial Agency: Museum of Oil« and »Armin Linke: The Appearance of That Which Cannot be Seen«

Fri, 15.04.2016 8 pm, ZKM_Foyer

Description

We cordially invite you to the exhibition opening of »Reset Modernity!« and the modules »Territorial Agency: Museum of Oil« and »Armin Linke: The Appearance of That Which Can not be Seen«!

What do you do when you are disoriented, when the compass of your phone goes haywire? You reset it. The procedure depends on the situation and device, but you always have to stay calm and carefully follow instructions if you want the compass to capture signals again. The layout of the exhibition itself offers a set of disorienting/reorienting procedures. No guarantee, of course: this is an experiment, a thought experiment, a »Gedankenausstellung«.

Before the opening speeches, the performance »SUPER POWERS OF TEN« by Andrés Jaque / Office for Political Innovation takes place at 7 pm at the ZKM_Foyer.

Speakers included:

  • Dr. Frank Mentrup, First Mayor of the City of Karlsruhe
  • Prof. Dr. h.c. mult. Peter Weibel, Curator of the exhibiton and CEO of the ZKM
  • Prof. Dr. Bruno Latour, Curator of the exhibition
