7th Karlsruher Silent Film Days :: For the seventh year running, the Silent Film Days will take place in Karlsruhe and at the ZKM.

Three of the path-breaking director's most important films will be shown in the ZKM_Media Theater: "Geheimnisse einer Seele," "Die freudlose Gasse," and "Die Büchse der Pandora." And for young viewers, the program will include Raoul Walsh's beautiful film "Der Dieb von Bagdad" ⁄⁄ more

The Karlsruhe Conservatory of Music - Guest appearance at the ZKM :: The ZKM has worked together with the University of Music Karlsruhe for quite some time now in various cooperation projects. The annual concert presentations of contemporary music from the University's composition classes and studios reflect the current artistic production. The computer studio at the Conservatory of Music will present its aesthetic and technical state-of-the-art with new works. The computer studio's laptop orchestra »Grainface,« founded four years ago, will present its own compositions and live improvisation ⁄⁄ more

"Belichtungen" - Contemporary Jazz Music :: The music by composer Moritz von Woellwarth is based on images and memories. The musical structures and melodies develop their own dynamics during the work process, and the impressions become increasingly more abstract. As a flexible ensemble, the Abstrakt Orchestra realizes musical ideas and improvisational concepts in the areas of modern Jazz, free improvisation, and new music ⁄⁄ more

:::::: ZKM EXHIBITIONS :::

Medium Religion :: Today's religious movements operate predominantly with images that can be spread across the entire world in a flash by means of contemporary mass media. The electronic picture media video and television have become the chosen media for religious propaganda as they are capable of being produced and distributed especially fast. The exhibition Medium Religion aims at demonstrating this medial aspect of religion using current examples of religious video propaganda and the work of contemporary artists. Shown will be, among other things, suicide confessions from religiously inspired terrorists, religious propaganda TV series, and documentaries on new religious sects and faith communities. Participating artists [amongst others]: Adel Abdessemed, Oreet Ashery, Maja Bajevic, Dias & Riedweg, Barbad Golshiri, Vitali Komar, Beryl Korot and Steve Reich, Korpys/Löffler, Sang-Kyoon Noh, Nira Pereg, robotlab, Anri Sala, Michael Schuster, Wael Shawky - The exhibition runs until April 19th, 2009 ⁄⁄ www.zkm.de/mediumreligion

The Discreet Charm of Technology. Arts in Spain :: Exploring the ambiguous relationship between art and technology, this exhibition suggests the existence of another form and another content inherent in the practice of media art. Technology as an instrument gives way to technique as a procedure that artists use to create visual poetics, sensory and formal explorations, and conceptual developments. The discreet charm of media art lies precisely in this potential to blaze new trails. Participating artists [among others]: Antoni Abad, Bressemer & Alia, Daniel Canogar, Equipo 57, Joan Fontcuberta, Jodi, Enrique Marty, Victor Nubla, Wolf Vostell - The exhibition runs until February 15th, 2009 ⁄⁄ more

Vertrautes Terrain - Collectors' Choice :: The show Vertrautes Terrain - Collectors' Choice includes inventories drawn from the private collections that cooperate with the ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art, namely, those of Boros, Grässlin and the LBBW - The exhibition runs until February 28th, 2008 ⁄⁄ www.vertrautes-terrain.de

ZKM1:1 - The ZKM staff in life-size portrait :: The Camera IMAGO1:1 is not only the largest existing camera in the world but also the only mobile "full-body - self portrait camera".

rosalie: HYPERION_Fragment :: With HYPERION_Fragment, and in addition to HELIOS (to be seen at the ZKM_Cube) another of rosalie's works is to be presented at the ZKM.
