11th Karlsruhe Museum Night. Discover KAMUNA
Sat, August 01, 2009 – Sun, August 02, 2009, Festival
We would like to invite you to (re)discover ZKM through the numerous actions and events of KAMUNA 2009. Entirely in line with the motto of the 11th KAMUNA, visitors to ZKM will become adventure travelers. ZKM | Museum Communications lends its support as a tour guide with guided tours through all of the exhibitions, a museum rally, and Laying Tracks – Reading Tracks.

Those who want to follow the urge to explore and reach beyond the heights can climb up the Peak of Wisdom found in the ZKM_Courtyard. A wall of books as a climbing wall invites those eager for knowledge and avid readers to climb to new intellectual heights.

Poetry Slam Meets Video Art lets you discover the ZKM’s video collection together with poets. At the ZKM_Media Theater, beginning at 7 p.m., four of the region’s best performance poets will each adopt a work and let it inspire a text. The audience will then be presented the video and created text in immediate conjunction.

With A Head of View, an interactive Surround Audio/Video environment in a 3D game-space you can found and design virtual worlds between 6 and 10 p.m. in the ZKM_Cube.

Later on, a special journey of discovery is waiting for you: the route continues (weather permitting) to the ZKM_Rooftop Terrace where you can experience Poetry in Light – the Poetry Slam performance will be lit by the glow of a light-art work.

The band Unique will set the mood with pop rock music at the ZKM_Forecourt beginning at 10 p.m. until the big KAMUNA closing concert.

The “ZetKaeM” Restaurant, Café in the ZKM_Foyer will gladly supply you with nourishment for the journey.
