[Yasmin_discussions] Oral Traditions and the Digital Arts

Dear Yasminers,
I would like to remind that there is an exhibition in the ZKM,
Karshruhe, Germany, about the subject of Notation. The exhibition is
curated by Hubertus v. Amelunxen, Dieter Appelt, and Peter Weibel, in
Cooperation wigh Angela Lammert and Bernhard Serexhe. I paste here a
part of the text extracted from their webpage:*

*"Notation. Calculation and Form in the Arts* :: Notation is dedicated
to the multifaceted spectrum of artistic process existing between
concept and work. The exhibition places works from all areas of art from
1900 until today in relation to one another: sign systems in literature,
music, painting, choreography, architecture, photography, film and in
media art. Over 450 positions by more than 100 artists and drawn from
international collections, the ZKM and the archive of the Academy of the
Arts are to be presented - The exhibition runs until July 26th, 2009 ?? <>

During the 20th century, artists have repeatedly made visible new
realities through the connection between scientific calculation and
artistic form. Morphic resonances, serial structures and sound waves:
Modernity has rediscovered the intellectual aspect of existence as a
field of research for art. John Cage, Etiénne-Jules Marey and Walter
Benjamin, Edgard Varèse and Iannis Xenakis, Mary Wigman and Robert
Walser, Oskar Fischinger and Marcel Broodthaers, Allan McCollum and Mel
Bochner, and Pierre Boulez: 20th century artists have designed fields of
relations in notations, (in the words of György Ligeti) either as
directions for play, as means of communication or as an autonomous work".

Hoping this is an enriching information to feed the debate,
