Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Centerbeam
Sat, 02.09.2017 11 am, Dauer: 7h, ZKM_Lecture Hall
With its exhibition »Centerbeam. A Performative Sculpture by CAVS«, the ZKM | Karlsruhe marks the 40th anniversary and recalls the spectacular outdoor installation »Centerbeam«, which was presented at the Documenta 6 in 1977 and one year later at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. In addition to the exhibition a symposium will engage with »Centerbeam« on September 2, 2017 from 11 am on.
The invited speakers, mainly artists who took part in the planning and realization of the original multimedia »art machine« (Manfred Schneckenburger) will look back and discuss the aims of the project and reflect on how it influenced their own artistic practice. In addition, the endeavor of documenting and archiving the installation and the exploration of reconstruction methods will be discussed in the symposium.
Please note: The symposium will be held in English.
