What else:

Part of "Technobodies," a weekend of events on July 29–31 organized in cooperation with Museum Brandhorst and Haus der Kunst.

The audience moves freely through the Kunstbau while a mobile robotic speaker sends sounds out into the gallery. The custom-built speaker produces a tightly focused sonic beam that blends with the reverberant space. It feels like the sound originates in invisible moving sources throughout the room or in the walls, floor, and ceiling as such. Rationally, we associate the acoustic source with the robot's position, but its sonic projections open up the possibility of filling the room's entire volume with sound.

Robodynamic Diffusion (RDD) is a project by Michael Akstaller, Nele Jäger, Oliver Mayer and Jan St. Werner, funded by Staatlichen Kunsthalle Baden-Baden and LEONARDO – Zentrum für Kreativität und Innovation Nürnberg


Part of "Technobodies"

To coincide with their individual exhibitions, the Munich-based institutions Lenbachhaus, Haus der Kunst, and Museum Brandhorst collaborate on a long weekend of public programs on July 29–31.

Technobodies focuses on the impact of new technologies on the visual and sonic arts. Starting from discourses rooted in the 1960s–'70s, Technobodies explores the relationship of human bodies to technologies today. What is the effect of technology on the hybridization of bodies? How do our bodies respond to the physical movements of analog and digital sounds in space? Can we understand expanding media environments through an ecological lens? To what extent is human creativity impacted by an information landscape? Are we even able to draw lines between technology and bodies? These and related questions will be addressed over three days of lectures, talks, screenings, performances, and events. 

Program details will be announced soon.
