28.09.2017 to 30.09.2017

Under the chairmanship of Morten Søndergaard and Peter Weibel the conference »ISACS17: Resonant Worlds – Curating Sound, Art & Science« takes place at the ZKM from 28–30 September, 2017. The conference addresses and debates the resonant worlds of sound, art, science and curation.

ISACS17 (re)investigates the  intersections of sound, art and science from the perspective of artistic / creative curation. The participants are asked to showcase, and reflect on, their own practices from the perspective of how and why choices are made in order to make things »work« – in the sense that it resonates in/with other people, contexts, culture, society, history, and »the world«. These are perhaps issues of (and effects from) embodied experiences, of language games, of existence.

The need for expanded and functional systems of collaboration is demanded – not only in the music world but in the world at large. freq_out is a collaborative sound- installation that brings twelve composers/musicians/artists together to work individually and together. The installation has been set up at Moderna Museet and Stedelijk Museum as well as in the Vienna Sewers and the berlin Schlossplatz Underground.


Since the end of the 70s, von Hausswolff has worked as a composer using recording technology as his main instrument, as a visual artist using light projections, video and still photography as well as other media and as a curator of visual- and sound art.
