Open Day at C3 / “The ZKM in Focus”:
Presentation of the Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie, Karlsruhe

6.00 p.m. – C3 auditorium
Iconoclash: lecture by Peter Weibel
The renowned artist, curator and art and media theoretician standing at the fore of the ZKM (Karlsruhe, D) since 1999 expounds his thoughts – in connection with the large-scale interdisciplinary exhibition at the ZKM – as to the role played in the modern world in the course of scientific, artistic and religious representation of the image. Is this type of employment even legitimate? What is the essence of the destruction and the adoration of the image? The lecture engages with the research programme begun last year by C3, entitled Image and Perception.
Peter Weibel will also introduce the institution under his direction and speak about its upcoming programmes and projects.

7.00 p.m. – C3 auditorium
Infermental presentation
Gábor Bódy, investigating filmic language and the experimental paths of film production, achieved his first international success in Baden-Württemberg: in 1976, his diploma film, entitled American Torso, won the first prize of the Mannheim Film Festival. When the director was given the chance in 1980 at the Hungarian Film Factory (MAFILM) to establish an experimental section, another cinematographic periodical publication was born: the idea for Infermental. The international periodical, gathering earlier experimental work and providing a forum for newer works, focused on research of media and articulation, as well as the new functions of filmic language. Its lexicon section stimulated the dispatch of previously unknown filmic compositions. The first edition of Infermental was realised twenty years ago, in 1982; following the death of Bódy, the complete material of the video-periodical was placed in the collection of the ZKM. Until now, the entire edition has not yet been accessible in Hungary; from this occasion on, however, the complete archive will be researchable at C3.

We have invited Infermental’s onetime international coordinator, historian Dr. Vera Baksa-Soós, to introduce the series.

7:30 p.m. – C3 Gallery
Between 1994 and 1999, the ZKM compiled the prominent interactive, media art compositions of the era, in a unique form. Artintact, as a book and CD- ROM combination, primarily concentrated on those works that were realised within the framework of the ZKM residency programme, during the second half of the 90’s. The German media institute has this year published the bilingual complete edition of the “virtual museum” of artintact in the form of a DVD-ROM.

Inverse Mask: Gábor Győrfi’s exhibition

Opening speech by Eszter Babarczy
The exhibition is on view until 30 November 2002

What the visitor sees is an obscure picture. It can only be presumed what it might depict. There is a small moveable spot in the picture that gradually becomes sharper and sharper. If we try to move this spot too quickly, it simply disappears and we can only see the oblique picture. To explore all the details of the picture and gain complete illusion (grand illusion) of it, one has to contemplate over the picture slowly and thoroughly...
