The future is the declared objective of the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe.On the occasion of its jubilee, twenty years after its foundation in 1989 the institution now casts back to its past with the opening of an exhibition, which brings the history of the ZKM to life: in a large-scale overview presentation commencing on the 10 October, the best of media art works produced by international artists at the ZKM will be presented.
Art from the research and development work carried out at the ZKM is to be exhibited. Thus, the ZKM | Institute for Visual Media will show various artistic works, but also the technical equipment of the Panorama Technology developed there. Interactive installations, recordings of important musical events and the presentation of the Sound Dome developed at the ZKMexemplify the work done at the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics. Publications, in book form, as CD, CD-Rom, DVD or the internet, show the vast output of these institutes as well as of the third institute – for Media, Education, and Economy.
In collaboration with guest artists from all over the world, the various institutes of the ZKM have generated a multiplicity of highly regarded works that have received worldwide recognition in biennales, festivals and exhibitions, which have thus decisively marked the face of media art. Thus, the exhibition “IMAGINING MEDIA@ZKM”aims at no less than the reconstruction of the international development of media art by way of a presentation of the productions from the ZKM.
