Rhythm Section consists of artists from various disciplines who explicitly and consciously deal with the theme of rhythm in their work. The core that unites the group is the commitment to a hyper-reflexivity in dealing with rhythm, not as a constraint but as an original constant. The exchange and dynamics that arise from the different approaches and media provide new approaches to art and its practice.


The exhibition 1 5 2 3 8 provides for the first time a retrospective overview of the various activities of the group, which has been working together since 2010. In addition to the exhibition, there will be a side programme of workshops, performances and artist talks. In cooperation with Villa Waldberta (Feldafing), members of the group from China are invited to an artist residency.
