As partner of the Quadriennale 2010, KAI 10 | Raum für Kunst presented the exhibition below zero from September 11 to 19, 2010. The title refers to the location and name of the study project Minus1, which was initiated by Düsseldorf artist and Professor for Media Art Mischa Kuball as an experimental laboratory at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne. Together with Minus1 artists Tobias Daemgen, Moritz Ellerich, und Julius Schmiedel, Mischa Kuball will set up an exhibition that connects light and space, while at the same time focusing on the fleeting nature and semantic mutability of light. The ideas of the Düsseldorf-based artists’ group ZERO reverberate throughout the exhibition forging connections between historical and contemporary artistic experiments with light.

For the first time, KAI 10 and the Arthena Foundation will cooperate with the ZERO foundation, Düsseldorf, in presenting Light in Darkness, a series of artistic interventions, lectures and discussions revolving around the heritage of ZERO, on September 18, 2010. In conjunction with Light in Darkness, KAI 10 will be open till 2 a.m. The artists’ light experiments at KAI 10 will build a thematic bridge between both places in the course of this special night of light and art at Düsseldorf’s MediaHarbour. KAI 10 will also present a musical performance by PYROLATOR, which will involve a combination of light, movement, sound, and visuals.
