The exhibition “Quantum of Disorder” and its supporting program are a result of the eponymous cooperation project between the ICS/ZHdK artists-in-labs program and Museum Haus Konstruktiv. Against the backdrop of the solo exhibition on computer artist Vera Molnar (which is taking place at Haus Konstruktiv simultaneously) and the curatorial work of the artists-in-labs program in art and science, there arose the idea of creating a platform for trans-disciplinary approaches in contemporary art. Established ordering systems and design systems, the definition of algorithms and parameters, with which certain forms are generated or functions are activated, mathematical calculations, and scientific deductions all serve as a basis for constructivist-concrete art, and for the artists exhibited here. Here, the incorporation of disorder and deviation is an essential and (to an equal extent) interlinking element.
