The ZKM, one of the largest centres in the world for the exhibition of media art and technology, has long been called the “digital Bauhaus.”
Curator Livia Rozsas will discuss her curatorial work and approach on the large scale exhibition ZKM exhibition Open Codes, which ran from October 20,2017-June 2, 2019 in which the Hexagram network was also featured through the exhibition of three Hexagram researcher and student projects. The exhibition and educational project Open Codes reflects on the world we live in today; a world that is created and controlled by codes. The project brought together computing and art together in various ways.
It was a new form of assembly, combining practical knowledge of computer code and critical artistic approaches in a single venue. The project sought to empower its participants to regain access to reality through instruments of thought and to reflect on the genealogy and current social impact of digital code, computer programing, and software. Open Codes was based on a concept by Peter Weibel and was shown at ZKM | Karlsruhe from October 20, 2017 to June 2, 2019.
