ARTE and the ZKM present: Everything for Art
Fri, 16.11.2012, 6 pm CET

In March this year, artists, graduates from art schools and autodidacts with their own artistic styles could apply for a unique project produced by the television company ARTE: under the guidance of mentors, the ARTE "TV Master Class" offered participants the opportunity to pursue a detailed enquiry into the question of art in general and the development of their own exhibition.

From over 2000 submissions, an internationally renowned jury (including, among others, lawyer and art enthusiast Peter Raue, and media businesswoman and art collector Christiane zu Salm) selected seven participants who were then given the opportunity to be observed and advised in a master class while at work by well-known artists Dieter Meier and Angel Vergara among others as mentors.

Produced this summer, the six-part ARTE series turned on the question "what is modern art?". The jury accompanied the work of the artists with lively as well as controversial discussions. Although over the course of the project, the number of participants fell from seven to four, fascinating works were produced and then shown in the ZKM | Media Museum in the exhibition ARTE and the ZKM present "Everything for Art". Managing Director of the ZKM Christiane Riedel accompanied the project and supported the young artists in the design of their presentations.
