BeatBeethoven

Verschiedenste Stellen des Bonner Stadtgebiets | 53111 Bonn

- a city course with 10-20 sound/performance installations

 

Using contemporary techniques, composer Jörg Ritzenhoff directs the rhythmic focus on Beethoven's classical works.

 

BeatBeethoven is realized in the smallest mobile cells - musicians/sound producers and performers/dancers - on squares, crossroads, in parks, the urban deserts. The installative cells each create their own cosmos, which the stroller ultimately perceives as a whole when walking.

Bach and Beethoven: True art remains eternal

Bach-Museum Leipzig | 04109 Leipzig

Today Beethoven and Bach are among the most famous composers worldwide, but how did it come about? The Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung, founded in Leipzig in 1798, provided the decisive basis for this. The exhibition illuminates Leipzig's musical life in the early 19th century and the mutually dependent canonisation of Bach and Beethoven as classics of music. Visitors also learn how the music of Johann Sebastian Bach influenced Beethoven's work.

Julius von Bismarck – Fire with Fire

Bundeskunsthalle | 53113 Bonn

"I draw my inspiration from science and work artistically," is how Julius von Bismarck describes his working strategy. Always in search of other forms of perception, he researches people, nature and technology using artistic means. In 2015, he sat on a rapidly rotating paraboloid, his Egocentric System, for the entirety of a show, exposing himself to the centrifugal forces as he sought to question and manipulate his and our perception.

We capitalists. From the beginning to Turbo.

Bundeskunsthalle | 53113 Bonn

Capitalism is much more than just an economic system. It is a social order that has shaped our thinking, feeling and existence for centuries. From a cultural-historical perspective, the exhibition looks at the fundamental characteristics of capitalism: rationalization, individualization, accumulation, money and investment, as well as typical capitalist dynamics such as unchecked growth and creative crises.
