Following our successful cooperative exhibitions with artist-curators in recent years, the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection was able to invite Gerwald Rockenschaub as our ›Visual Curator‹ for ›Sound on the 4th Floor‹. For his installation and visual concept, he has selected around 50 works from the Mercedes-Benz Art Collection, stretching from modern to contemporary art, with works suggesting musical structures visually and creating these structures with the help of sound, composition, noise or visual rhythms. Our exhibition focuses on aspects of immateriality and the imagined visibility of Sound. There are no tones, noises or sounds to be heard in the space during this exhibition. An Audio device allows you to call up each sound track individually. At the same time, the audio guide also offers an array of electronic tracks composed by Gerwald Rockenschaub for this exhibition.
The free brochure includes essays by Renate Wiehager, Nadine Isabelle Henrich, Friederike Horstmann and Sarah Maske. Central themes are composition & sound, acoustic immersion effects and rhythm in music and painting.
