How are globalisation and digitalisation changing the world? In what ways can art help us surmount the setbacks of modernisation? The exhibition “New Sensorium – Exiting Failures of Modernisation”, curated by Yuko Hasegawa and organised by the Karlsruhe Centre of Art and Media Technology (ZKM) as part of its “GLOBALE DIGITALE” programme, featured works by international and predominantly Asian artists. The pieces investigated the influence of various cultures on processes of digitalisation and globalisation, and thus expanded on Western discourse regarding these developments of modernity. The artistic spectrum included everything from performances and video and sound art to sculptures and drawings. An accompanying publication presented the participating artists and their works together with related essays and scientific texts.
