"between two deaths: the festival" takes a new path for art mediation. The dense program of performances, concerts, film- and videoscreenings, presentations, and discussions creates a space of diverse aesthetic experiences, which reveals the artistic positions in the exhibition as the hub of multilayered contexts.

Music In collaboration with the curators of the exhibition musician and composer Marcus Schmickler has put together a musical program.  Next to his band Pluramon - with singer Julee Cruise, well known from various David Lynch productions -  the line-up will feature DJ Strobocop, Von Spar, Carbonid Solo, Burning Star Core, Hecker & Haswell, and Thomas Brinkmann. 

Performance From the night of May 11 to May 12, the exhibition "zwischen zwei toden / between two deaths" will also be the site of performances specially developed for the festival by participating artists Terence Koh and Brock Enright. Also planned are music performances by the artists Jutta Koether and Rita Ackermann.

Film- and videoprogram On Friday, the ZKM_Cube will be the location for a videoscreening of works by bankleer, Nathalie Djurberg and Ryan Trecartin. Walead Besthy has conceived an extensive filmscreening titled "After the Ends: Another Coldwar Slumber Party", which will be presented on Saturday.

Lectures On Saturday, talks by participating artists will investigate the exhibition project and related themes, followed by a conversation with the curators Ellen Blumenstein and Felix Ensslin.
