The broad spectrum of meaning of the colour white, of void and silence in the visual arts, and the associated difference between materiality and immateriality, is at the focus of the exhibition and event project featuring international artists in the Akademie der Künste at Hanseatenweg. The aim is to explore artistic/aesthetic practices from the 1950s/60s until the present day that have brought about critical and process-based artistic positioning at international level in selected circles. The focus is on the »question of seeing (...), the visual non-slipping« (John Cage, 1961). In addition to colour, material, void, and silence, the exhibition and the accompanying programme will reference themes of keeping silent and narration in literature, performance, music and architecture.
