DARZ art – Art in the Data Center
DARZ differs in many respects from other IT companies in Germany. Not only are we the only full IT service provider to have our own high-security data center. We also have made it into an ecosystem that generates real innovations through the combination of infrastructure, technology, know-how and cooperation.
Technology and Culture Go Hand in Hand
Above all, cooperation and interdisciplinary thinking make us successful. We are firmly convinced that external influences, particularly from the cultural field, inspire new ways of thinking and thus stimulate technology. As a city of technology, academics and culture, Darmstadt perfectly combines innovation and technology with culture and design.
In order to support this persona at DARZ, we are presenting together with the Lattemann Gallery a contemporary art exhibit by Helmut Lander.
Weimar-born artist Helmut Lander (1924-2013) studied architecture and graphic design at his hometown university. His affinity for technology is evident in his art. Lander’s sculptures are characterized by clear lines and cubist, geometric shapes. His artistic career led him through numerous phases; in the 50s and 60s, he was best known throughout the region for his wall mosaics as well as his concrete and leaded glass windows for public buildings. From the mid-1960s, plastic pieces were at the center of his work. His preferred materials were iron, aluminum, bronze, acrylic and wood. His knowledge and ability were passed onto students at the Technical University in Darmstadt. Lander died in Darmstadt in 2013.
The Leonid Jakobson State Academic Ballet Theater
Hesse is one of the leading federal states in Germany for both technology and culture. For the seventieth birthday of the federal state of Hesse, Sergey Mirochnik, Managing Director of DARZ art GmbH, set the goal of cultural exchange between his original homeland of St. Petersburg and his adopted homeland of Hesse.
In attainment of this goal, the State Academic Ballet of St. Petersburg led by Leonid Jakobson, were guests in Hesse for the first time in its history. The ballet group is one of the best and most admired formations in Russia. It combines the academic school formed by famous choreographer Leonid Weniaminovich Jakobson with the grace and ease of contemporary interpretations. The program contained particularly expressive selections from world-famous classical ballets such as The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Giselle, Sleeping Beauty, Chopiniane and other works. The ballet was accompanied by the 40-member international Lviv Philharmonic Orchestra.
