New Sensorium (Opening)
Fri, March 04, 2016 7 pm CET, Opening

We cordially invite you to the exhibition opening!

At the ZKM, Japanese curator Yuko Hasegawa will present works by 16, Asian artists sensing the way forward, exploring exit strategies from the dark confusion at the precipices of dualist modernization. Their focus is on new sensory realms, indicating a new consciousness derived from globalization and digital technologies. Here, of course, sensorium means not only sensory inputs. It includes the accompanying cognition for reevaluating our changing living conditions. In this sense, our new sensorium is a collection of means enabling us to explore the transient close conjunction between our virtual and actual lives.

At about 8:30 pm: Performance »WITHIN« by Tarek Atoui.

Speakers include

  • Klaus Stapf, Mayor of the city of Karlsruhe
  • Akira Yosano, Vice-Consul, Japanese Consulate General
  • Prof. Peter Weibel, ZKM CEO
  • Yuko Hasegawa, Curator of the exhibition
