  • Registrationopen for everyone: no registration required


To coincide with their individual exhibitions, the Munich-based institutions Lenbachhaus, Haus der Kunst and Museum Brandhorst collaborate on a long weekend of public programs on July 28–31. Technobodies focuses on the impact of new technologies on the visual and sonic arts. Starting from discourses rooted in the 1960s–'70s, Technobodies explores the relationship of human bodies to technologies today. What is the effect of technology on the hybridization of bodies? How do our bodies respond to the physical movements of analog and digital sounds in space? Can we understand expanding media environments through an ecological lens? To what extent is human creativity impacted by an information landscape? Are we even able to draw lines between technology and bodies? These and related questions will be addressed over three days of lectures, talks, screenings, performances, and events.
