Mode2 KP — Tank London

SUNDAY 31.01.2010
6:30PM – 8:30PM
Tank hosted a presentation by well respected international artist and curator Karl-Heinz Jeron. His interest in shifting popular social perceptions involves using publicly available data, statistics, mathematics, web based media and cheap materials to create works that challenge the traditional ideas of production, value and ownership of the art world.

Mode2 KP deals with how our society transforms information into knowledge. It is about reflection and perception, about the competition between two languages mediating complexity. One is the language of science. The other one is the language of art which has to understand science but doesn’t want to become it. The idea of what good science is or should be, the images of science and scientificity, are difficult to grasp but no less significant for it.
