KH Jeron calls his new sound sculptures “Soundings”. They use electrolytic processes to create sound. What is of central interest to KH Jeron in creating them are the phenomena of daily life. His work is a kind of examination and treatment of popular social questions. He collects material from open sources like Google, Wikipedia or television. This material then serves as the basis for performances, installations with small robots and video and sound art.

Karl Heinz Jeron was born in 1962 in Memmingen and now lives and works in Berlin.
His works have been shown at the ZKM Karlsruhe, the Ars Electronica Linz, at Documenta X, at the ICA London, the Walker Art Museum, Minneapolis, the Berlinische Galerie, Berlin and the Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco.

The Museum für Kommunikation Frankfurt was hosting the event series DIY Art Active together with the Frankfurter Kunstverein from November 2011 to January 2012. Three artists who follow the DIY principle in their work have been invited to give a lecture and host a workshop. DIY is by far more than a home reno slogan: this is proven in the exhibition “Do It Yourself: Die Mitmach-Revolution” (Do It Yourself: A Hands-on Revolution) (until February 19, 2012) at the Museum für Kommunikation Frankfurt.

DIY Art Active is supported by the Dr. Marschner Stiftung.
