Edge of Now
Jul 12 ― Sep 16, 2018
The Three Rooms project, co-organized by Nam June Paik Art Center, CAC and ZKM in the form of competition, is aimed to discover and support new media artists in Korea, China and Germany. This year, 15 members of the recommendation committee recommended 30 new artists and Kim Heecheon, Yang Jian and Verena Friedrich, who have presented new sensibilities and views in this era of changing technologies and media, are finally selected through screening processes. This project to provide the selected artists with the opportunity to showcase their works internationally in exhibitions on tour at CAC and ZKM is differentiated from other competitions with regional limitations. The participating artists present their own senses and views of the reality changed by technological media by offering a contemporary perspective on the classical representation, the awareness of the media that have become part of our daily life and our perception at the boundary between online and offline respectively. We hope the exhibition Edge of Now will inspire us to think about where we are now and envision the future at the ‘Edge of Now,’ just at the moment to move into the future.
