Resonance and Silence.  Synesthetic aspects of film and video
April 13 – September 9, 2012 | Goetz Collection at Haus der Kunst, Munich

The third Goetz Collection exhibition in the former air-raid shelter of the Haus der Kunst concentrates on the fundamental differences between film and video that set these artforms apart from such classic media as painting or sculpture: time and sound.

León Krempel, the curator of Klang und Stille, has selected works from the Goetz Collection that range from the strident canine barking of El Gringo to the almost unbearable grinding sound of Sabbath and even visual sequences with no sound at all, such as Ruurlo, Bocurloscheweg or Uomoduomo, which nevertheless evoke an inner idea of sound. Klang und Stille positions our perceptions at a critical distance to the sensory seductiveness of the media. It is only when we are aware that images can evoke sound, and sounds can evoke images, that we are in a position to understand film and video in a fundamental and analytical way. Only then does the artwork emerge from the field of entertainment and contribute to our understanding of reality.
