Relations of Matter, Light, Space and Sound – Modular Relations is joining an exhibition, a symposium, workshops, performances and an audiovisual night program. Three organisations: ZK/U – Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik, MOTA – Museum of Transitory Art and Centrum Sztuki Współczesnej Łaźnia collaborate with the mission to improve life in the cities by looking at three angles – structural activism, public space reinvention and personal approaches on an experimental level.
Through the Symposium we look into questions of contemporary urbanities through modular design – spaces through new genres of public art – and living architecture through sound and art experiments.
>> Modular Relations Exhibition
from the MoTA Collection Arte/Facts with Andy Lomas, Bojana Petkovic, Jan Vormann, Andreas Trobollowitsch, Adam Basanta, Stephen Cornford & others
The exhibition joins contemporary artists and researchers who explore the inner being of things: relations between sound and light and the relation between materials and their surroundings.
