From Iconoclash to H3K Basel
Online Talk with Sabine Himmelsbach
The project »BEYOND MATTER: Cultural Heritage on the Verge of Virtual Reality« serves to revive past, groundbreaking exhibitions. One of them, »Iconoclash. Beyond the Image Wars in Science, Religion and Art«, was presented at the ZKM Karlsruhe in 2002.
In the context of the series of talks »BEYOND MATTER? – A Revival of Clashes between Materiality and Representation« Sabine Himmelsbach remembers the preparatory phase for the exhibition »Iconoclash«. With a leap into the present, she shares her current practice as the director of H3K (Haus der elektronischen Künste Basel), focusing on the institution’s reaction to the recent lockdowns and the possible ramifications of these measures.
