Short Cuts

At a time in which the digital is omnipresent, the interdisciplinary group exhibition Short Cuts highlights the dialogue between two generations of artists who operate between art, design and technology. This comparison makes clear how technology and its influences are present in the electronic arts of our own times as well as in the concrete and kinetic art of the 60s and 70s. In these works we see graphic design, algorithms, innovative production processes of series and new kinds of aesthetic forms. Comparable with the view through a kaleidoscope, the exhibition allows access to a variety of formal and discursive approaches which refer to the interplay between the increasingly digitalised world in which we live and artistic practices influenced by digital media.

The collaborative project Short Cuts is supported by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia in the context of its « Digital Culture » initiative. The School of Graphic Design Bern and Biel, the association TSKZ and Ensemble Vortex are also partners of the exhibition.
