The two-day symposium (planned for the moment as a hybrid event) comes to life within an international, collaborative, practice-based research project, Beyond Matter, that takes cultural heritage and contemporary art to the verge of virtual reality and reflects on the virtual condition with a specific emphasis on its spatial aspects in art production, curating, and mediation via numerous activities and formats, such as the HyMEx Symposium. Beyond Matter takes place from 2019 to 2023; it was initiated and being led by ZKM | Karlsruhe, and includes seven partners (Centre Pompidou Paris, Tallinna Kunstihoone, Aalto University, Tirana Art Lab, Weiss AG and Ludwig Museum).
The programme of the Symposium is composed of a number of invited international speakers, as well as of the participation of presenters chosen through the present call for papers procedure. The aim of HyMEx is to provide a wide platform for thought-provoking ideas concerning a topic that is essential in the everyday life of most art museums.
