Der Zyklus: Formenverwandler

curated by Sam Hart and Harm van den Dorpel


This exhibition at blockchain co-working space full node berlin brings together a selection of works that deal with notions of time and (im)mutability. various software clocks will be installed on computers or projected, complemented with printed posters, a calendar, and wearable pins.

the title references the song 'Formenverwandler' by Der Zyklus (Gerald Donald aka Heinrich Müller, 2001), in which vocals declare: "I’m shape-shifting from place to place, bending time, curving space."

Similar to this song, the works in this show reflect on time and change on subjective terms, by suggesting alternative representations and visualizations of this most fundamental of units.

With works by Dana Baddad, Laura Brown, Simon Denny, Eric Li & Zak Jensen, Omsk Social Club, Niko Princen, Adriana Ramić, Billy Rennekamp, Micah Schippa, Laurel Schwulst, Aarati Akkapeddi, Soft, Justice Thelot, and Damon Zucconi

Many thanks to Kei Kreutler, Beth McCarthy, Billy Rennekamp, Sophie Ricarda, and Full Node Berlin for their generous support.
