Vertigo of Reality

September 17, 2014 to December 14, 2014
Akademie der Künste Berlin-Tiergarten

How does today’s art alter reality? How do aesthetic production and political, social space interact with each other? Through its current priority programme ‘Vertigo of Reality,’ the Akademie der Künste, Berlin, is examining the construction and deconstruction of reality in the arts. This exhibition and event project, beginning with a ‘Preparation Office’ held weekly until July, is the focal point of the Akademie’s autumn programme.

Gegen den Datenstrom

Medien sind Extensionen des menschlichen Körpers, stellte Marshall McLuhan in den 60ern fest. Daraus folgerte die Künstlerin Lynn Hershman Leeson, dass die Cyborgisierung des Menschen in vollem Gange ist. Jetzt stellt die Pionierin der Medienkunst in der Berliner Galerie Aanant & Zoo aus
