Art in the Age of Orbitization
Wed, June 07, 2006 – Thu, August 03, 2006

The conceptually designed project by Philip Pocock and Peter Weibel examines the new possibilities of curating in the age of post-globalization, “Orbitization”. The technical basis comprises up-to-date internet applications as well as mobile applications and Bluetooth.
The thematic focus of this Web2.0-Mash-ups is space art in the widest possible sense. The content of the project data bank draws on areas such as fine art, architecture, science fiction, film, music, digital art and media. It is presently possible to call up over 400 entries on “orbital art”, among which are projects by Piero Manzoni via Ilya Kabakov up to Cai Guo Qiang – a data pool, which is continually being extended.
»SpacePlace« brings together into an innovative forum different mobile technologies and procedures of collectively publicized information on the internet. The public may participate in its design via the internet or, on site at the ZKM, via Bluetooth compatible mobile telephones.
