John M Armleder has created a unique indoor and outdoor expe­ri­ence. He has devel­oped new, expan­sive instal­la­tions specially for the SCHIRN, combining high­brow culture and the everyday world, the profound and the banal all in an ambiva­lent way.

Contem­po­rary art has its very own sound. In the group exhi­bi­tion BIG ORCHESTRA the SCHIRN presents pieces that also func­tion as musical instru­ments.

PUBLIC GUIDED TOURS

OPEN SOUND SESSION WITH IGNAZ SCHICK

Big Orchestra

Also on the three days of the Museum Embankment Festival there will be an Open Sound Session on the exhibition BIG ORCHESTRA.

The session under the lead­er­ship of sound artist and performer Ignaz Schick (Berlin) will place the focus on Carsten Nicolai’s work bausatz noto ∞. The instal­la­tion with four record players offers partic­i­pants the possi­bility of creating new combi­na­tions and tracks, taking inspi­ra­tion from a vinyl archive of sounds that Cars­ten Nico­lai has collected as a musi­cian and DJ
