Which visual artists produce downloadable art

Double life

The decision in favor of music, however, often means more than just a change of media. Public music performances or the production of phonograms also mean different working conditions and locations as well as different audiences. The exhibition title borrowed from a book by Jörg Heiser Double life is to be understood in this sense. In fact, the way in which individual artists distinguish or interlink the two areas can be very different. Some are well-known in both fields, while others have their own fan base in each area - a broad spectrum with many nuances.

The synopsis in this exhibition makes one aware of the impulses visual artists * provided for the music of the 20th and 21st centuries. If, from the end of the 19th century, one is generally looking for new ways of expression by expanding the sound spectrum and breaking traditional conventions with regard to tonality, harmony or rhythm, visual artists, as outsiders and often even amateurs, are often more brazen in this field thus more radical, since they are less burdened by the traditions and rules of this discipline. This applies to composing by means of the random principle as well as to the development of noise and noise music. Visual artists applied the principles of later minimal and drone music early on or, with their deliberate rule-breaking in genres such as jazz or rock, were pioneers for them bath-Strategies of punk and "amateur" music. Her approaches also play a role that should not be underestimated in the diverse and divergent spectrum of current music creation.

Disinfected headphones can be borrowed from the exhibition free of charge. But you can also use your own headphones with the usual 3.5 mm jack plug.
