For the opening of the Dumb Type exhibition, Centre Pompidou-Metz is putting on two exceptional performances by artists from this legendary collective that has influenced the artistic world far beyond the Japanese archipelago...These events will tackle the main dimensions of Dumb Type language: social engagement and criticism and the creation of a new language based on technologies.

A key figure in music and electronic art, Japanese composer / artist Ryoji Ikeda focuses on the physical qualities of sound, particularly ultrasonics and frequencies. Since 1995, Ryoji Ikeda, also a member of the artist collective Dumb Type, has had a strong presence on the international art scene, with concerts, installations and recordings that integrate sound, acoustics and images. His explorations have led to collaborations with the visual artist and musician Carsten Nicolai, the choreographer William Forsythe, the photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto, the architect Toyo Ito.
