»Resonance becomes the antithesis of alienation in the world« – With his light and sound installation »res·o·nant« the conceptual artist Mischa Kuball invited artists, thinkers and writers to interpret.

The book »res·o·nant« comments on conceptual artist Mischa Kuball's project of the same name at the Jewish Museum Berlin. From November 2017 to August 2019, Kuball performed a site-specific light and sound installation on underground sections of the Daniel Libeskind-designed building. In this book, 18 authors and artists sonicate, illuminate, reflect, and project the resonant space Kuball created inside and outside the museum.

Following the book launch, Mischa Kuball, Gregor Lersch and Peter Weibel will join the conversation and provide further insights into »res·o·nant« and the meaning of resonance. A musical contribution will be added to the program by »Kreidler« with a live performance of their album »Flood«, released in 2019.

2G rule for events

From 01.11.2021, the 2G rule will apply to events at the ZKM, i.e. only vaccinated or recovered persons will be admitted to the events. Either a valid vaccination certificate or convalescent certificate must be presented as proof. The implementation and design of the 2G rule is the responsibility of the federal states. You can read the current regulations here. For exhibitions, guided tours and visits to the bistro, the 3G rule (vaccinated (geimpft), tested (getestet) or recovered (genesen) persons) still applies.

Born in 1959 in Düsseldorf, the conceptual artist explores architectural spaces as well as their political and social discourses by means of light, thereby erasing the boundaries between public and private space. Since 2007 Mischa Kuball has been a professor of public art at the Academy of Media Arts in Cologne and was awarded the German Light Art Prize in 2016.

Gregor H. Lersch is exhibition director and curator at the Jewish Museum Berlin. Before working for the Jewish Museum, Lersch was a lecturer at the Chair of Art and Art Theory at the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) and was part of the team at the Gropius Bau Berlin.

Born in Odessa in 1944, Peter Weibel studied literature, medicine, logic, philosophy, and film in Paris and Vienna. He became a central figure in European media art on account of his various activities as artist, media theorist, curator, and as a nomad between art and science.
