Especially designmai has to offer more in this direction, but as their website is kind of poor in this regards better go for more information to this post on generatorX .. and check out the links connected to the last year show ‘Perimeters, Boundaries and Borders’, which already lists some of the artists.
Another exhibition – found via generatorX’s comprehensive information – shows the experimental work of filmmaker and musician T.Fleisch. The mentioned film ‘energie‘ meanwhile can be downloaded from the artist’s website.
