Sound, vision, film, a destroyed piano: What happens when musicians make use of ideas and strategies from the art world? And what kind of pictures result when painters are influenced by music? To be interested in the lives of others, to pursue the unknown, to copy it, to use it in one’s own work – in short: to conduct a cross-mapping between the worlds of music and the visual arts: this is the subject of the exhibition HYPER! A JOURNEY INTO ART AND MUSIC curated by the former editor-in-chief of Spex and Electronic Beats, Max Dax. The exhibition at the Deichtorhallen Hamburg and the accompanying program of musical events at the Elbphilharmonie, HYPER! SOUNDS, includes more than 60 international artists and musicians who explicitly work between the disciplines of art and music and – often unnoticed by the broader public – decisively integrate references from both these areas into their art.  The exhibition HYPER! will offer a wide-range of experiences with over 200 works, including paintings, drawings, photographs, sculptures, and installations that deal with music within visual art, as well as numerous hybrid multimedia works that show the reciprocal relationships between music, video, and visual art.
