Within the last few years, the medium exhibition has gone through changes: a transition from the dominance of an object towards space to the placement of animation, gets visible. Scenography imparts the atmosphere to space. A performative way of presentation that was developped by artist in the 20st century now seems to replace traditional artworks. This processes surprisingly show a sohisticated notion of time and space and signalise a relation between object and subject that is not common to the West.
Eckhardt Siepmann directed the Werkbundarchiv – Museum der Dinge, Berlin, between 1976 and 1995 and works as scenograph and writer. In this talk he will reveal the topic of time within the medium exhibition and presents a series of own projects.
The series Visit is a open platform for the presentation and discussion of contemporary art. Künstlerhaus offers to everyone interested, the possibility to propose ideas or concepts for discussions, talks and screenings. The compilation for the series is made by a group of members that meets frequently.
