Mind the Gap is a concert series in symposion format. Six artists from Austria, Germany, Sweden, Colombia and Switzerland formulate a musical bagatelle, an artistic sound concept, an acoustic idea, and present their work in duplicate: both in the MUMUTH concert hall and on the Web. A major challenge is to conceive the work such that in the two very different spaces – in the black box and on the white board; with 33 loudspeakers and in stereo – it can unfold its aesthetic effect independent of the context. It is a radical formal requirement with consequences, a self-experiment with a need for reflection.

Mind the Gap is organized by the CoS project in cooperation with the Society for Artistic Research and the Zurich University of the Arts.
