The exhibition »Matter. Non-Matter. Anti-Matter« (ZKM, 2.12.2022 - 23.4.2023) deals with the reconstruction of historical exhibitions and presents, among other things, virtual 3D models of the exhibitions »Les Immatériaux« (Centre Georges Pompidou, 1985) and »Iconoclash« (ZKM, 2002). In this context, two workshops will be held in which international experts will discuss the curating of interdisciplinary exhibitions and their historical research.

An important concern shared by »Les Immatériaux« and »Iconoclash« was to develop the conception and content of the exhibitions in interdisciplinary networks of artists, scholars, and curators specifically established for this purpose. In the workshop, the different structures of interdisciplinary curatorial networks will be examined and discussed in terms of concepts and results. The aim is to reflect on recent research on the two exemplary exhibitions and to place the questions of the interdisciplinarity of art and science raised in them on a broad discursive basis.


The workshops take place as a cooperation of the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe and the Leuphana University Lüneburg, Institute for Philosophy and Art Studies, research project »Les Immatériaux Research« (DFG funding BR 6317/2).

Project management: Livia Nolasco-Rozsas, Felix Koberstein (ZKM), Andreas Broeckmann (Leuphana)

Participants: Barbara Vanderlinden, Gabriele Gramelsberger, Daniel Tyradellis, Beatrice von Bismarck
