New technologies and materials – this is the title under which the first exhibition of the German based gallery in Berlin opens 2019 in cooperation with the University and other institutions.
The Exhibition Presents Works By Students, Teachers And Alumni
The series presents the artistic and scientific work at the founding place in Germany today and shows which contemporary issues in the disciplines currently play a role and demonstrates the technological-artistic debate with them.
The New Technologies and Materials exhibition marks the beginning of a series of exhibitions designed to make the innovation of materials accessible to a wider audience as a temporary showcase. With its location ,the exhibition represents artists, forms ideal conditions for the shop window and in this context becomes a laboratory, network node, communication and action space.
This exhibition is dedicated to current topics such as digitality in everyday life, economics and social issues, sustainability and environmental awareness, as well as new technologies and materials in art. In search of answers to questions of the 21st century, science, technology, art and design are combined. The exhibition is based on a cross-university open call for artists and scientists on new technologies and materials in art. Based on technological leaps in development and the resulting social changes, new developments in art are taken up and works from the fields of freelance art, product design, media art and media design, human-computer interaction and design of media environments are brought together. Test setups and experiments merge into a laboratory and thinking space and combine craftsmanship, technology and new materials.
Social Development Labs
Previously unimagined possibilities exist in these social development leaps also for new developments in the art. A creative-playful approach, as it underlies the art, widens the view on the innovations of our time and can thus help to develop new approaches. Virtual realities, 3D prints, robotics, mobile computing, image recognition software or telephone applications have been new fields of activity in the arts for many years.
