Exhibition view "Record Again"
Part 2
Fri, July 17, 2009 6 pm CEST, Opening
RECORD > AGAIN! - - Part 2 concentrates on early German video art and shows numerous discoveries, which, for the most part, have no longer been available for viewing for decades. Included are major reconstructions, such as the installation »Schafe« by Wolf Kahlen from 1975, shown on six black and white televisions; a rare work by Ulrike Rosenbach with her partner at the time, Klaus vom Bruch, the boxing match from 1972 that Joseph Beuys participated in at the documenta 5, and the first video synthesizer collages by Walter Schröder-Limmer. Many of these videos had to first undergo elaborate restoration in the ZKM | Laboratory for Antiquated Video Systems in order that they could be played at all. Another special feature is that the material will be presented on contemporary screens.
After premiering in Karlsruhe, the exhibition will be shown at the Ludwig Forum Aachen, Kunsthaus Dresden, and at the Edith Ruß Site for Media Art in Oldenburg. A detailed catalogue with DVD will be published for the exhibition.
