British artist and researcher Carolyn Kirschner will present her project »Iconoclash Slow Squeeze« created during the Beyond Matter Residency program and answer related questions about, among others, the relationship between materiality, representation and physical stimulation in conversation with Dr. Cecilia Preiss, research associate at the ZKM | Hertz-Lab.

With »Iconoclash Slow Squeeze«, the artist explores so-called Autonomous Sensory Meridian Responses, or ASMR for short – tinglingly pleasant reactions that can be triggered by auditory and visual stimuli that most people perceive during relaxation, calming and well-being. Incorporating well-known modernist artworks, recontextualizing them and simultaneously transferring them into a different material form, Kirschner questions the connection between art, fetish, pleasure and experience.

Immediately following, the world premiere of her audiovisual work will take place at the ZKM’s Cube.
