ZEBRA #2: It Will Always Continue I Music as the Carrier of Ideas

- RegistrationNo registration necessary
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.

Thomas Eggerer in Conversation with Florian Pumhösl
Since the 1990s the artist Thomas Eggerer, who was born in Munich and lives in New York, has created subjects in his figurative paintings that are dedicated to the individual in the field of tension between community and isolation, as well as between the general public and individuality. The irony of his depictions of everyday scenes and gestures direct the gaze to their philosophical quality. InGo to the event
Jana Euler in Conversation with Monika Bayer-Wermuth
A scared white shark, a portrait of Ed Sheeran, or a female depiction of Christ: Jana Euler’s striking motifs are always only the entry to a larger debate about painting. For the last decade the Friedberg-born artist has used styles and expressive forms of painting eclectically in order to question the medium using its own means. In the process she opens the discourse on socially relevant issuesGo to the event
