"Kinetismus: 100 Years of Electricity in Art" at the Kunstahalle Praha showcasing Carlos Cruz-Diez


Exploring how electricity has transformed artistic practice from 1920 to the present day and the fascination it continues to provoke, the exhibition presents an overview of four key areas: cinematography, kinetic art, cybernetic art, and computer art.
