Impression 04 (Karlsruhe): Center for Art and Media

Recently I’ve been to the Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe (ZKM) to take a look at current exhibitions; a few of them are introduced on its homepage. In general, you can spend endless hours if you want to read through the background of all the displayed items; the image galleries contain only a small sample. The admission fee is 6 €, there are no discounts for being a student.

Based on the events list, the following exhibtions were displayed (links go to Google Image Search):

Now let’s go to the first gallery.

Entrance hall. The building itself is huge, with lots of space for several exhibitions at the same time.

Datumsoria was one of the main attractions. Here a video of the room as seen in the last picture:

And a video of an item that’s somehow representative for similar ideas:

A few more impressions:

This is an item of "Reinhard Döhl: Everything is Possible. Anything Goes.", and the exhibition's name fit the content quite well.

The ZKM Gameplay stage was already introduced in 2013 as can be seen in the following video by the ZKM.

There are tons of other (mini-)games you can play there, all programmed and designed by students, and many of them also with physics or e. g. audio creation.

In sum, I definitely recommend going there. As the exhibitions are changing, it might even make sense to take a look at it each year. Apart from the artistic aspect, you can also catch a glimpse at the public current state of technology.
