November 16, 2013–January 12, 2014
Type as Image in Movement
An exhibition at the ZKM | Museum of Contemporary Art
Opening: Fri, November 15, 2013, 7 p.m., admission free!
→ Information auf Deutsch
Through multiple digital possibilities, script can go beyond its function in the mediation of information and is increasingly gaining an autonomous, aesthetic status. Analog or digitally based films or film fragments are referred to as script films, whereby moving, animated, graphically designed and, above all, script set to sound play the main role.
The exhibition "SCRIPT FILMS" leads to places in which we encounter moving script: artistic productions, but also feature films, advertising,
music videos or media facades in cities. The project "SCRIPT FILMS" represents an attempt to compile, typologize and publically present classical popular as well as lesser noticed and frequently difficult to access script films from twenty countries dating from 1895 to the present.
The exhibition enables visitors interactive access to script films: they can select the films and the kind of performance themselves. The exhibition is arranged as a mobile archive. The presentation at the ZKM provides insights into cultural and media developments, offers retrospectives and diagnosis of the present, but also outlooks into the media future, not least in the interactive media.
The project "SCRIPT FILMS" is collaborative project between the ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe and the Experimental Media Lab (xm:lab) at the Saar Academy of Fine Arts, FACT Foundation for Art and Creative Technology Liverpool and Goethe Institutes worldwide. The project was sponsored by the Kulturstiftung des Bundes.
