Caline Aoun: Changing Times
Deutsche Bank "Artist of the Year" 2018/19

In her work Caline Aoun, who was born in Beirut in 1983, combines minimalist strategies and conceptual art with the question of how digital technologies alter our perception of images and information. The artist focuses particularly on the flood of images resulting from the digitalization of our globalized world. In her artistic practice, Aoun deals with materiality and “digitality,” with abstraction and concreteness, as well as with the discrepancy between the human imagination and sensual experience.

The exhibition at the PalaisPopulaire, which was shown previously at MAXXI in Rome, is the first large solo presentation of the Lebanese artist in Germany.

Das Totale Tanz Theater

100 years of bauhaus

The Bauhaus looked for new artistic forms of expression for people in modern industrial societies. Among them was Oskar Schlemmer’s stage experiments as well as Walter Gropius’s “Totales Theater” project. To commemorate the 100th birthday of the Bauhaus, “Das Totale Tanz Theater” has revitalized these ideas for the digital age. The installation, which was conceived and realized under the leadership of the Interactive Media Foundation, transfers visitors to a 400-meter-high virtual reality dome. On this virtual stage they meet dance machines that wear futuristic versions of Schlemmer’s costumes. At first, the visitors can control the movements in the space. But then the system takes over the choreography. A sensual dance experience – and at the same time a highly topical reflection on the relationship between man and machine.
