Thu, November 08, 2018 – Sun, January 20, 2019

Together with the Nam June Paik Center in Yongin, South Korea, and the CAC | Chronus Art Center Shanghai, the ZKM supports young media artists. Three selected artists are invited to present their works at each of the media art institutions. After the first stop at Nam June Paik Center Korea, the group exhibition can be seen at CAC | Chronus Art Center Shanghai from November 8, 2018. 

The exhibition will provide an opportunity to verify different perspectives and attitudes of the artists exploring technological media-based art.

The »Three Rooms« project«, co-organized by Nam June Paik Art Center, CAC and ZKM in the form of competition, is aimed to discover and support new media artists in Korea, China and Germany. This year, 15 members of the recommendation committee recommended 30 new artists and Kim HeecheonYang Jian and Verena Friedrich, who have presented new sensibilities and views in this era of changing technologies and media, are finally selected through screening processes.

This project is to provide the selected artists with the opportunity to showcase their works internationally in exhibitions on tour at CAC and ZKM is differentiated from other competitions with regional limitations. The participating artists present their own senses and views of the reality changed by technological media by offering a contemporary perspective on the classical representation, the awareness of the media that have become part of our daily life and our perception at the boundary between online and offline respectively. The exhibition »Edge of Now« is supposed to inspire us to think about where we are now and to envision the future at the »edge of now«, just at the moment to move into the future.

Following the station in the Chronus Art Center, the exhibition will travel from Shanghai to Karlsruhe and will be on display at the ZKM from June 29, 2019.
