During the spring of 2018, the ISM Hexadome was viewed and experienced by visitors to the atrium at the Martin Gropius Building in Berlin. Nine outstanding international contemporary artists presented their installations and performances in the fields of sound and visual arts.
The ISM Hexadome is a 360° exhibition for cultural appreciation of sound, immersive art and electronic music developed by the Institute for Sound & Music (ISM) together with the Pfadfinderei design and motion graphics studio and the ZKM | Centre for Art and Media.
The name “Hexadome” is a reference to the basic geometrical form of the dome structure. Six cantilever modules together make up its basic structure. These parts are pre-assembled on the ground, raised and positioned at their base points using articulated joints and then firmly fastened together. The six projected surfaces, each in 4 x 4 metre format, surround the viewer when he or she enters the dome. The multimedia works developed by the artists contributing to the Hexadome exhibition are projected onto the screens from outside the structure. With the exception of the projection surfaces, the structure was left entirely unmasked, thus making the structure’s references to the historical atrium of the Martin Gropius Building all the more visible.
