| “Europe’s rebirth must be the goal.”―Peter Weibel

Peter Weibel, the long-standing CEO of the ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien (Center for Art and Media) in Karlsruhe, and the recipient of the Lovis-Corinth-Preis in 2020, has influenced the international scene of media art as an artist as well as a theorist and curator. His artistic oeuvre comprises conceptual art, performance, experimental film, video, and computer art as well as his exploration of music.
This publication offers insight into Weibel’s diverse work. One main area consists of works in which the artist takes up core questions about Europe.  In other works critical of the system, which always question the usual concept of art as well, Weibel addresses migration, expulsion, war, and terrorism as well as economic and ecological catastrophes.

The LOVIS-CORINTH-PREIS was first awarded by the KünstlerGilde e. V. in the Kunstforum Ostdeutsche Galerie Regensburg in 1974.
Under the conditions of the nascent age of media, since the 1960s PETER WEIBEL (*1944, Odessa) has created an oeuvre that dares to conceive artistic creativity as an open field of action. He is head of the ZKM, Karlsruhe until 2023. Since 2017 he has been director of the Peter Weibel Research Institute for Digital Culture at the Universität für angewandte Kunst in Vienna.
