Magic Media – Media Magic
Video art since the 1970s from the Wulf-Herzogenrath-Archive
12 September – 13 October 2019, Pariser Platz 4, 10117 Berlin
An absolute highlight, with carefully selected works and intriguing introduction to the development of the video art. Wulf Herzogenrath is a famous curator and an German Academy of Arts Member, who has made a crucial contribution to the establishment of video art in Germany. I will just mention the first solo show of Nam June Paik in Europe in the far 1976 in Cologne.
A rare chance to see highlights of video art and sculpture from the 60s and onwards, as well as written material, documents, sketches, photographs and Nam June Paik's legendary artists guest books, which have followed the artistic production and the history of video art to this day.
Works by all of John Cage, Vito Acconci, Rebecca Horn, Ulrike Rosenbach, Bill Viola and rising star Rafaela Vogel are not to be missed at Magic Media – Media Magic.
