Shao Yong, ein chinesischer Philosoph, Dichter und Kosmologe entwickelte im 11. Jahrhundert eine Anordnung aus acht Trigramme und vierundsechzig Hexagramme. Sechs Jahrhunderte später Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, ein deutscher Philosoph, Mathematiker und Jurist verwendete Shaos Anordnung bei der Entwicklung von binären Rechenoperationen.
Shao Yong, a Chinese philosopher, poet, and cosmologist developed an arrangement of eight trigrams and sixty-four hexagrams in the 11th century. Six centuries later Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, a German philosopher, mathematician and jurist used Shao’s arrangement in developing binary arithmetic operations.
Nicht nur Shao Yong verknüpfte das Dualsystem mit der chinesischen Philosophie und Weltanschauung, dem Daoismus, sondern auch Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz sah im Binärcode ein überzeugendes Sinnbild des christlichen Glaubens.
Not only Shao Yong linked dual system with Chinese philosophy and worldview, with the Taoism, but also Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz saw in the binary code a convincing symbol of the Christian faith.
Der Binärcode umfasst beides: Wissenschaft und Religion.
The binary code includes both: science and religion.
Wie geht aber Kunst mit dem Dualsystem um?
Wie reagiert zeitgenössische Kunst auf binärcodierte Media?
But how does art deal with the dual system?
How does contemporary art react to binary-coded media?

Digital exhibition in public space:
Munich and Istanbul

Funded by the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts; Munich Department of Culture; Ströer; MVG and Münchner Fenster; Istanbul municipality.
A digital exhibition project initiated by the Istanbul municipality, the Karşi Sanat Çalişmalari Art Center, the artist group Rhythm Section, and the Digital Art Space in Munich.
Due to the pandemic, exhibition venues are not allowed to hold openings and even have to remain closed. Exhibitions can not be presented and communicated. The distance between artists and viewers is more than ever. How can artists bring works closer to the public during the period of lockdown, when museums and exhibition halls are closed?
Digitization influences and changes daily life, relationships, works and even elections. Urban development is taking the form of a megamedium.
Smart city stands for intelligent networking within a city. Moving images are a trendy topic for media in public spaces. Moving images on public video screens offer the opportunity for effective communication with mobile audiences in passing. In istanbul, the metropolitan municipality currently operates more than 11000 public video systems. On Munich’s public transport system, a mix of editorial content and advertising is shown on 137 large screens at stations and directly in the subway and streetcar vehicles on more than 1,700 screens. The infotainment program Münchner Fenster shown in the vehicles alone reaches hundreds of thousands of passengers every week. The Münchner Fenster is produced by mcrud GmbH, the large screens are operated by Ströer.
In view of numerous requests from artists in Munich and Istanbul, the curators Dr. Karin Wimmer (Digital Art Space, Munich), Dr. Ezgi Bakçay (Karşi Sanat Çalişmalari Art Center, Istanbul) and the artist group Rhythm Section decided to establish a digital gallery.
RHYTHM SECTION SALON BINÄR is a digital gallery in public space that gives artists the opportunity to be seen and invites viewers to participate in the development of digital art. Art opens itself to the public and even to the public that does not come to the museum.
RHYTHM SECTION SALON BINÄR is a sustainable project, because no resources are consumed, the project uses the existing screens of the public urban space.
The digital gallery RHYTHM SECTION SALON BINÄR will make art visible to visitors by displaying digitally created works by the artists on screens in the public urban space of Munich and Istanbul over a period of one month.
RHYTHM SECTION
A project on the subject rhythm in visual arts.
Not to be confined by the greatest, yet to be contained within the smallest is a definition, which declared the enterprise of the artists group Rhythm Section.

The Beautiful Formula Collective is about painting and creating collective works based on The Beautiful Formula Language. We use the combination of spontaneity, improvisation and logic of rhythm, which gives us structures and rules while painting. The Beautiful Formula Collective produces and stages group works not only in the studio, but also as a live painting performance in front of the public.

I just watched the video twice. It makes me think of the birth and death of language, the geological eras, the processes of formation and destruction, the Apocalypse, the rebirth. Very beautiful. Thanks everyone, guys!
Serena Semeraro

Album 1 by The Beautiful Formula Collective is the first Live Painting Album realized exclusively with digital tools, such as an iPad, Apple Pencil, MacBook, drawing tablet on a digital surface, an online whiteboard. Seven compositions written with The Beautiful Formula Language were painted live online in succession by Daniel Geiger, Oleksiy Koval, Serena Semeraro, Mirco Tarsi, Veronika Wenger and Michael Wright together. Serena and Mirco in Jesi, Michael in London, Veronika, Daniel and Oleksiy in Munich saw the movement of each other in applying colors to a digital surface and reacted to it without leaving their places and studios. The application of colors to a surface by six artists was recorded and edited into an album.

PASSAGE: A GATHERING OF COLLECTIVES 


Merkezkaç Art Collective is organizing a meeting of collectives after the “Encounters” exhibition that it co-operated with Space for Culture. With the principle of “unity is strength”, it brings together the art collectives and initiatives operating in various cities in Turkey and abroad. The collectives that come together in the project discuss the social issues such as identity, power, ecology, alienation, migration together with the current problems of contemporary art and try to make suggestions for possible solutions.

The exhibition aims to work on and determine the changes that collectives create through their own art practices in the centre and periphery (off-center) and aims to revive the dialogue environment by discussing the problems of the collectives together. It is among the goals of the project to shed light on the problems of the new collectives and to provide new perspectives to the young artist candidates.
