In conjunction with its twenty-year anniversary, ZKM will open its archives. More than 1,500 videos, around 13,650 works of electroacoustic music and a selection of more than 1,000 documents can be comfortably called up and studied at viewing and listening sites and via innovative interfaces. With the archive exhibition “Experiments in Art and Technology” ZKM displays a central piece of media art history. Normally unavailable catalogues, project sketches, and artist correspondence offer insight into the path-breaking history of reception of the organization E.A.T., which was founded in New York City in 1966 and in the following years, brought artists together with engineers. It was thus that world-renowned artists, such as Robert Rauschenberg, John Cage, and Carolee Schneeman, realized key interactive media artworks in the context of E.A.T., whose brilliance continues to shine today.
