Through the exhibition “Dieter Meier. Works 1969–2011 and the YELLO Years” (April 6th–August 19, 2012) the ZKM | Media Museum presents the work of Dieter Meier, the multi-talented artist from Zurich, as well as his activity as director of film and video-clips.
Dieter Meier’s works were characterized by the phenomenon of time; his actions were mostly announced and terminated with bureaucratic precision. The seeming banality and irrationality of many of his actions contrasted with the enhanced attitude of anticipation among the public. And yet Meier consciously created the insignificant, contrasting the desperate search for significance and artistic patterns of meaning with a frenzied and radical “non-meaning”.
