Matter, Non-Matter, Anti-Matter delves into the significance of digitality and computer-generated environments in the context of the material understanding of art production and the showcasing of it. Through deep engagement with two past landmark exhibitions and their philosophical foundations, the exhibition lends insight into the implications for contemporary curatorial and artistic practices, including their mediation, that arise from the assumption that the digital comprises a material layer.
Based on the case studies of Les Immatériaux (Centre Pompidou, 1985) and Iconoclash. Beyond the Image Wars in Science, Religion, and Art (ZKM, 2002) and within the framework of the practice-based research and international co-operation project Beyond Matter. Cultural Heritage on the Verge of Virtual Reality (2019–23), two art institutions—ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe and the Centre Pompidou in Paris—have committed themselves to examining the possibility of exhibition revival through experiential methods of digital and spatial modeling.
Matter, Non-Matter, Anti-Matter presents the digital models of the aforementioned past exhibitions on the newly developed “Immaterial Display,” a hardware created specifically for the exploration of virtual exhibitions. The online launch of the models will take place in conjunction with the exhibition opening. Furthermore, a selection of artworks and artifacts, mainly from the collections of the Centre Pompidou and ZKM | Karlsruhe and many of which were showcased in Les Immatériaux and Iconoclash, attest to a conceptual dematerialization and digital re-materialization of artworks. Examples of digital curatorial and exhibition reconstruction techniques that were implemented within Beyond Matter offer a broader and contemporary approach to the subject.
Matter, Non-Matter, Anti-Matter features artworks by: Josef Albers, Giovanni Anselmo, Arman, Art & Language, Fiona Banner, Samuel Bianchini, Jean-Louis Boissier & Liliane Terrier, John Cage, Jacques-Élie Chabert & Camille Philibert, Marcel Duchamp, Eric J. Heller, Michel Jaffrennou, Martin Kippenberger, Maria Klonaris & Katerina Thomadaki, Denis Laborde, Mark Lewis & Laura Mulvey, Kasimir Malevich, Pietro Manzoni, Gordon Matta-Clark, Roman Opalka, Nam June Paik, Readymades belong to everyone®, Jeffrey Shaw, Annegret Soltau, Klaus Staeck, Manfred Wolff-Plottegg, Erwin Wurm, and Paule Zajderman & Daniel Soutif.
Commissioned pieces by Jeremy Bailey, damjanski, fabric | ch, Geraldine Juárez, Carolyn Kirschner, and Anne Le Troter engage with the past exhibitions as well as their digital counterparts. They bear witness to a transformation taking place in the creation, collection, and mediation of art that is becoming ever more digital.
An extensive program will accompany the exhibition: A webinar series directed towards museum professionals and cultural practitioners presents practices for working in digital or hybrid museums; two workshops organized together with Andreas Broeckmann of Leuphana University Lüneburg explore interdisciplinary curating and methods for researching historical exhibitions; workshops based on “performance-oriented design methods for audience studies and exhibition evaluation” (PORe) implemented by Lily Díaz-Kommonen and Cvijeta Miljak of Aalto University.
The iteration of Matter, Non-Matter, Anti-Matter at ZKM | Karlsruhe was curated by a team led by Lívia Nolasco-Rózsás that is affiliated with two institutions participating in Beyond Matter. Members of the curatorial team are Felix Koberstein, Moritz Konrad (ZKM | Karlsruhe) and Marcella Lista, Philippe Bettinelli, and Julie Champion (Centre Pompidou, Paris).
Following its stopover at ZKM | Karlsruhe, a refashioned version of Matter, Non-Matter, Anti-Matter will be on view from May to July 2023 at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
