Current Program


HOLON brings artists from different fields together as a way to expand the limits of their work and explore new contexts. Their findings are documented and showcased at the end of each project period as a site-specific commission.


Saturday 21 JAN
— 3 FEB 2023


On the occasion of Vorspiel 2023 CTM/Transmediale, HOLON presents LOOM by ATELIER-E; an installation in which phosphorescent threads store information as light and transform a loom into a never-ending weaving machine of algorithmic patterns and sounds.

Originally commissioned for the TextilWerk Bocholt, the work will now be recontextualised for the exhibition space at Greifswalder Str 29, using its 8-channel sound system and light installation. LOOM pays homage to the punch card system invented by Joseph Marie Jacquard, which stored and replaced human craftsmanship and labor into a machine readable data format: one of the first signs of data driven aesthetics and authorship. The technology’s disruptive consequences have become the technological leitmotif of our accelerated world. The underlying principle of pattern generation, encoding and decoding, by means of binary punch cards, manifests itself to this day in the digital age. Our relationship to industry and its machinery are continuously renegotiated, so as the LOOM enters new contexts through time, a new matrix of meanings are inscribed upon it.

Each exhibition date is organised into two public viewing sessions. Please RSVP to reserve your time slot.
