Thanks to the generous support of the Canadian Embassy in Berlin, this festival can now be seen on DVD. Three of the composers will attend the presentation of its release. Along with the music, the DVD also contains a documentation of the symposium with musicological contributions and additional material.

Lisa Schmitz. InVerse Library :: Over the past several years, Lisa Schmitz has developed a unique method for photographing libraries. She turns all of the books around so that only the white paper is visible rather than the book spine. She covers all of the printed papers with blank paper. She erases, as it were, the writing, the essence of the books, and thereby negates the archive, the entity of the library - The exhibition runs until January 7th, 2006 ⁄⁄ more

The exhibition will grasp Virilio's philosophy in numerous pictures and videos - The exhibition runs until January 7th, 2006 ⁄⁄ more
