Anke Hervol, secretary in charge of the Fine Arts Section, Akademie der Künste

Since the 1970s, Wulf Herzogenrath, Akademie member and long-time director of Kunsthalle Bremen, has made a decisive contribution as an art historian and curator to the establishment of video art in Germany. His archive, which is in part held by the Akademie der Künste and in part privately owned, not only contains highlights from video art, but also reflects the entire range of artistic production and thus the history of video art from its beginnings in the 1960s to the present day.

In the Magic Media – Media Magic exhibition, the Akademie der Künste will show artistic and documentary film material, documents, sketches, photographs and artist guest books from the curator's collection by Vito Acconci, Klaus vom Bruch, John Cage, peter campus, Lutz Dammbeck, Mathilde ter Heijne, Rebecca Horn, Joan Jonas, Bjørn Melhus, Marcel Odenbach, Nam June Paik, Ulrike Rosenbach, Bill Viola and Raphaela Vogel, among others, as well as on Kölner Projekt'74 and documenta 6.

In addition, based on a selection of small-format original folios and prints (including by Marcel Duchamp, Viking Eggeling, Max Ernst, Marcel Jean, Yves Klein, Kazimir Malevich, Christian Schad and Andy Warhol), Wulf Herzogenrath will present his statement on the history of art in the 20th century, describing the path into the digital era.

As part of Berlin Art Week / In cooperation with Videoart at Midnight
