To the exhibition

We cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition »Renaissance 3.0« at the ZKM | Karlsruhe. In memory of Peter Weibel.


Art is primarily oriented towards things that can be grasped with the natural eye, while science has been using instruments since the 16th century to reach previously inaccessible »res invisibiles« of the microcosm and the macrocosm. Today, in the digital age, artists increasingly work with the same tools, methods and programs as science. This common »pool of tools« points to the beginning of a scientification of art, as the Italian Renaissance had already aimed at.
