ZKM_Projects [selected]

PIPES is a collaborative project of ZKM | Karlsruhe together with three further European cultural associations: CIANT (Prague), HANGAR (Barcelona) and BRAINZ (Prague). It involves Participatory Investigation of Public Engaging Spaces of communication with highly creative and technologically innovative ambitions. Within the project we will support intense interdisciplinary interactions among audiovisual media artists, communication specialists, scholars, architects, activists and the citizens with a goal to experiment with new models and symbolic means of communication. Special focus will be on a cognitive analysis of communication symbols and symbolic expressions leading to innovation in dynamic interactive tools and scenarios of expression and sharing. ZKM | Karlsruhe will mainly contribute to the cognitive analysis of communication symbols and – together with the artist Michael Bielicky and the programmer Axel Heide – supervise the innovation and publication of a dynamic interactive communication tool, called ICONUU.

Ambiant Creativity
The institutions ACROE – Association pour la Création et la Recherche sur les Outils d’Expression, ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics and Ionian University Korfu tend with the project Ambiant Creativity to create an interdisciplinary, European network and to develop a teaching method of digital composition which may lead to some more orientation.

Netzspannung.org is a platform for interactive art and media art education, elaborated by Prof. Monika Fleischmann and Wolfgang Strauss at Fraunhofer Institute for Intelligent Analysis and Information Systems IAIS. Online since 2001 "netzspannung.org" defines itself as a tool for researching, reflecting upon, and imparting electronic culture. The platform for the theory and practice of media art offers over 2,500 work descriptions, texts, images and videos for the purpose of interdisciplinary education in art, design and informatics. Netzspannung.org was presented from 2007 until 2009 at the exhibitions YOU_ser: The Century of the Consumer and YOU_ser 2.0: Celebration of the Consumer at the ZKM. Since December 2010 the website is hosted at the ZKM. www.netzspannung.org

digital art conservation
The project digital art conservation aims firstly to document and catalogue the collections of digital art in the region of the Upper Rhine Valley and secondly to make a contribution to the international discussions around the conservation of digital art. This contribution will be based on the long-standing engagement of the partners with the conservation and presentation of computer-based new media art. The project will run from January 2010 to December 2012 and is co-financed by the European Union's INTERREG IV Upper Rhine programme.

ZKM mobile tagging
In its 20th anniversary year, the ZKM will present several technical innovations in museum mediation to satisfy its claim of staying at the forefront of research. If your cell phone photographs this code, and you have the appropriate software for decoding, you see texts or images, or hear sounds. QR code allows you, with your cell phone, to go beyond the spatial and temporal borders of the medium paper and the medium museum.
[Start date: Dec. 2008 (Mediagramm I/2009)]

The cooperative project carried out by the Federal Cultural Foundation, the ZKM | Institute for Music and Acoustics, the Documentary Archive Kassel and the European Media Art Festival Osnabrück (EMAF) was initiated with the aim of developing a trans-institutional platform and databank structure for the long-term archiving and presentation of music and media art.
[Start date: July 2008; duration: three years]
