The reciprocal influence of the visual arts on music is the topic of the second ZEBRA Salon, hosted by Max Dax. The author, publicist, and former editor-in- chief of “Spex” takes to the road with the artist Emil Schult.
Born in 1946, Emil Schult is regarded as one of the first people in the Federal Republic of Germany to have conceived of art and music simultaneously. With song texts such as “Autobahn” or “Taschenrechner,” the master student of Joseph Beuys and Gerhard Richter gave a decisive impetus to the young band Kraftwerk at the beginning of the 1970s. His album covers provided groundbreaking conceptual identities for one of the world’s most influential pop bands. As well as this collective collaboration, a comprehensive body of paintings was created over the last five decades, in which Schult’s interest in epochal changes meets his fascination for nature, science, and technology.
Switches in media and appropriation, curiosity and interest in the strategies and methods of others dictate the beat, when the conversation tours from Düsseldorf to the West Coast of the USA and, after a stopover in the Bahamas, back to the Rhineland. A (sound) trail leads to Hamburg, where the exhibition curated by Max Dax, “Hyper! A Journey Into Art And Music,” can currently be seen.
“Music as a carrier of ideas / it will always continue.” July 16 in Munich.
