The catalogue "Ohne Schnur. Art and wireless communication" is out!

The arts have been fascinated by wireless communication since its invention more than 100 years ago - having a critical look at its effects on society, on the perception of space and body consciousness. In this catalogue, exemplary topical installations, video and sound projects, graphics, photography and objects are presented and integrated into the context of media theory and art history by essays written by international scholars.
