ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe
18 June 2011–8 January 2012
Cult Object: With the invention of the automobile 125 years ago, one of the great hopes of the 19th century went into fulfillment—that of unfettered individual mobility. From 18 June, 2011 to 8 January, 2012 the ZKM | Media Museum will present artistic reflections on both material and immaterial mobility: Each has its origins in Baden: the invention of physical mobility by Carl Benz in Mannheim, in 1886, as well Heinrich Hertz’s discovery of electromagnetic waves as the foundation for worldwide radiocommunication in Karlsruhe in the same year.
