Ladies and Gentlemen,
we cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition Negative Space. Trajectories of Sculpture on Friday,9, at 7 p.m.

5.4.19 at 7 p.m. ZKM

Since classical antiquity the history of Western sculpture has been closely related to the idea of the body.
Informed by this conception, historical sculpture rests on three elementary categories — mass, volume,
and gravity — whether it is body-related as with Auguste Rodin or abstract as with Richard Serra. The
seminal achievement of twentieth-century artists was that they conceived sculpture from the starting
point of space. The results were not sculptures of bodies, but instead spatial sculptures: spatial lines and
contours, spatial constructions and illusions, free spaces, surrounding spaces, hollow spaces, in-between
spaces, worlds of mirrors, light, and shadow, data spaces, installations, and immersive environments. The
sculpture of the twentieth century is pendent, not standing; not ponderous but floating; not full but empty,
airy, and light; not opaque but diaphanous; not real but virtual; not massy but slim.
With its 200 exemplary artworks the exhibition Negative Space — Trajectories of Sculpture tells a new
story of sculpture in the twentieth and twentyfirst centuries.

With the opening of Negative Space we start into a long weekend in this anniversary year celebrating
30 years of ZKM which offers free tours, discussions, workshops, a lecture, and a concert. On Saturday,
6.2., we shall explore the Negative Space exhibition from 2 p.m. with artists‘ talks and curators‘ tours.
At 7 p.m. we will present in the Cube Sculptural Aspects in Loudspeaker Music with a lecture given by
Gerriet K. Sharma followed by a concert. On Sunday, 7.4., from 11 a.m.– 6 p.m., we will celebrate the
extension of the Open Codes II exhibition (until 2.6.19) with guided tours and workshops.

We are looking forward to seeing you!
