140708: ZKM - YOU_ser: The consumer's century

ZKM – Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie: YOU_ser: The consumer’s century You are the user “YOU_ser: The consumer’s century” offers an insight into the permanent collection and what one would generally describe as “new media”. It is not a temporary exhibit, but more like another chapter of the cyclopaedic question with which the ZKM attempts to translate the overriding museum-concept into the next millennium. Mass communication via the Internet, so one believes, represents both the participation and the reciprocal impact as a kind of culture for everyone. Numerous installations are constructed in such a way, that they save the diverse activities of the visitors on the World Wide Web, from where they are retransmitted into the museum with a beamer-projection. A good example for this is Peter Weibel’s and Matthias Gommel’s “FLICK_KA-Project”: an automated camera device positioned in the foyer sends photos to the Internet, and by using the detour of telecommunication, they find their way back to exhibit – presented in monumental dimensions. Ludger Brömmer’s “Pattern Machine” and Götz Dipper’s “Mozart Würfel” (Mozart Cube) allow the visitor to feel like a composer: one can choose beats or audio sequels from a limited number of music-modules, and receive unlimited possibilities to generate music. Or one can feel like the participant at a huge symposium and follow the discussions as an oversized projection on the wall. The exhibit wants to transmit the feeling that logging-in and chatting is a creative act. The ZKM has the ability to transform every visitor into a user. And it also believes that the reverse is true: every user is a visitor of the museum: how many spams and postings would be necessary to refute this?
