Modular Relations Conference + Sonica Berlin AV Showcase

28 Oct | 12:00 - 29 Oct | 05:00

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 Laznia CCA 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.


>> Symposium

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 Petković, Jan Vormann, 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.

+ installations from Alona Rodeh, Sixten Sanne-Göransson and Satyashree Gummuluri

, Ben Nathan and Matthew Robinsons
