ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany

By extending the original duties of a museum, the ZKM | Center for Art and Media has become a cultural institution unique throughout the world. It is a house for all media and genre, a house for both spatially-based arts, such as painting, photography and sculpture as well as time-based arts, such as film, video, media art, music, dance, theater, and performance. ZKM was founded as a museum in 1989 with the mission to perpetuate classic arts in the digital age, which is why it is occasionally referred to as „Electronic or Digital Art Bauhaus,“ an expression that can be traced back to Heinrich Klotz. Beyond that, ZKM houses institutes and laboratories where scientific research, development, and production is carried out. Alongside the classic guiding principle of a museum, namely, to protect the disappearance of artworks, ZKM has also taken on the task of creating conditions under which works of art arise; for one, by way of guest artists, and for another, by way of the staff members. For this reason, it is called a center and not a museum.

REMOTEWORDS @ Open Day ZKM Karlsruhe

At the open day 2015, preciesely 165 days before the start of GLOBALE, ZKM turns into a laboratory: In manifestations, lectures, performances, guided tours and concerts the visitors can test facilities how art and science approach each other.

For „Tag der offenen Tür“ the concept of REMOTEWORDS is being expanded into a virtual game: a large-scale, individually accessible satellite picture of the exhibition premises (ZKM) invites each visitor to cover one roof with a message. The statements are forthwith applied to the satellite picture. Visitors can contribute statements on issues such as urbanity, navigation, digitality, virtual simulation and city (urban) space. At predetermined times, remote-controlled drones will fly over the 10 x 6 m walk-around satellite picture. The pilotless aircraft is equipped with a CCTV system that, during its flight, relays live images of the area below onto a projection wall. The live image is practically indistinguishable from a real flyover-video of Karlsruhe.
