For Sean Scully (*1945), painting not only expresses what one sees, but also specifically what one feels.


Kunst Sound Maschine
From fairground organ to ghetto blaster to large vehicles with loudspeakers for parades and demonstrations, all the way to acoustic warfare – whatever the circumstances in which mobile sound systems are used, we succumb to their equally fascinating and menacing effect. Since the beginning of the 20th century, artists have been developing sound machines whose special combination of sculpture, movement and tone provides a multisensory experience: whether as fragile equipment or monumental objects, mobile sound sculptures create their own particular pulsating world.
