Thomas Köner: PNEUMA MONOXYD

[plug.in], Basel | 09/07/2007 - 10/14/2007

[plug.in] presents the first solo exhibition in Switzerland by Thomas Köner (*1965 in Bochum). It encompasses a new video made specially for the show along with the first-ever photo-works by the artist.

Köner’s installations operate with the interference of sound and image citations derived from the everyday urban world. Through images the artist generates a spherical expanse and emptiness of the kind normally only produced by tones, whereas for its part the sound is so insistent that it becomes almost physically palpable in order to illustrate scarcely tangible encounters, to visualize people and their vanishing. Since 1990, Thomas Köner has contributed as a musician to more than 70 CD productions. His video works have won several international awards, including the Golden Nica at the 2004 Ars Electronica in Linz, and the Award of the 2005 Transmediale in Berlin.

A cooperative project between [plug.in], Basel, und Hartware MedienKunstVerein, Dortmund. In collaboration with Pro Helvetia, in the framework of “Plattform Schweiz: Kultur mit Nordrhein-Westfalen”.

The works shown in Basel will be documented in a catalogue published to mark the forthcoming extensive presentation of Thomas Köner’s work by the Hartware MedienKunstVerein Dortmund in collaboration with the Dortmund Kunstverein and further institutions in the Ruhr district from 5 December 2007 to 13 January 2008.
