This first comprehensive exhibition introduces the entirety of Pe_Ã¡nek's oeuvre by focusing on a selection of his most important works: the Color-Piano, the Pilot's Monument, the kinetic-light Sculpture for the Edison power-station, the Luminated City Environment, and others. The exhibition was made possible thanks to the reconstruction of Pe_Ã¡nek's demolished works. The center of attraction will be the reconstructed light-kinetic and multi-media sculpture made for the Edison power-station. The sculpture will run on an interactive program. Terminal Bar [where?] Starting in mid-November with the opening of the Terminal Bar, the Terminal Foundation will programa series of provocative interactive events utilising the media tools of CD-Rom, Internet and Video and presenting confrontational and challenging approaches to art and multimedia.

Symposium (mit Demonstrationen) Goethe-Institut, Masarykovo nÃ¡bÃ¸e_Ã 32 3.-5.12.1996 Goethe-Institut Prag, Akademie der SchÃ¶nen KÃ¼nste Prag, Soros Center for Contemporary Arts Prague Der gesamten Medienkunst liegt implizit ein recht vager Kommunikationsbegriff zugrunde, der noch kaum auf seine interkulturelle GÃ¼ltigkeit bzw. kulturspezifische BeschrÃ¤nktheit Ã¼berprÃ¼ft wurde. Kommunikation hÃ¤ngt sehr stark von ihrem kulturellen Umfeld ab. Wenn zutrifft, daÃ? "the medium the message" ist, mÃ¼Ã?te dies doch zu grÃ¶Ã?ten Verzerrungen und Bedeutungsverschiebungen fÃ¼hren, transportiert man Medium und darauf aufbauende Kunst von einer Kultur in die andere. Ist uns dieses Defizit gar nicht bewuÃ?t, legt dies den Verdacht nahe, Medienkunst sei ohne "message", bedeutungsleer.
