Record > Again! 40JAHREVIDEOKUNST.DE, Teil 2

27. Februar bis 16. Mai 2010 / 27th of February to 16th of May

The exhibition "Record > Again!", a cooperation with the ZKM | Zentrum
für Kunst und Medien, Karlsruhe, the Ludwig Forum Aachen and the
Kunsthaus Dresden, forms the second part of the comprehensive project
"40JahreVideokunst.de" which started in 2006. While the first part
concentrated on the most important video works during the past fourty
years in Germany, the second part was mainly conceived based on the
question of restauration and archiving of the material.

Many of the video works of the sixties to the eighties have vanished
from public and art historical focus, because the replay of its formats
became technically impossible or they needed to be restored. ZKM |
Laboratory for antiquated video systems has the task to find these
works, restore and digitalize them. They assembled this display of
important works of video art from both parts of Germany among many were
thought to be lost.

Therefore the exhibition is able to present some debut performances and
many works which had not been shown for years by artists such as Joseph
Beuys, Claus Böhmler, Klaus vom Bruch, Holger Czukay, Jörg Herold, Nan
Hoover, Wolf Kahlen, Marcel Odenbach, Klaus Rinke, Ulrike Rosenbach,
Dieter Roth, Ulrich Rückriem, Reiner Ruthenbeck, Peter Weibel and many
more. They suggest a re-evaluation of the history of video art in Germany.
