Sep 8, 2017. Over a entrance 7 months, one of a plant’s
robotic comforts for physique emporium will serve, alongside other sites, as
basement for an designation combined by Chinese artist Liu Xiaodong.
Digitalisation plays a critical purpose in both a physique emporium activities of
BMW Group and a artistic routine of Liu Xiaodong. As such, the
plan exemplifies a significance of a energy of creation in both

viewpoint to demeanour during a attention and a production processes.
The vernissage during ZKM | Center for Art and Media on Sep 8,
2017, during 7 PM, will launch a months-long artistic routine necessary

Insomnia”. It includes 3 cameras that are commissioned all over
Germany and destined during several motifs. Each camera sends one picture
per any second to a muster space during ZKM | Center for Art and
Media, where 3 robots will register a collected information on
movements with paint on canvas. A sum of 3 particular art works
will so be created, any formed on a several motifs prisoner by the
cameras. The layers of paint will overlie as time goes by ensuing in
unusually unenlightened compositions.
In further to one camera during a robotic comforts for physique emporium at
BMW Group Plant Dingolfing, dual some-more cameras were installed, one at
Berlin’s Academy of a Arts and a other during a trade heart in
Karlsruhe. The live art work will be on arrangement during ZKM | Center for
Art and Media from Sep 8, 2017, to Mar 18, 2018, where it will
be shown as partial of a “Datumsoria” exhibition.

about Liu Xiaodong’s project: “We during BMW Group Plant Dingolfing are
really vehement about this art project, that is charity a open at
vast wholly new insights into production processes.
Digitalisation and innovative technologies pierce attention and art
alike, and a artist’s designation is a singular countenance thereof. I
am deeply beholden to Liu Xiaodong and ZKM | Center for Art and Media
in Karlsruhe for creation this idealist art work probable during a site.”
