Heinrich Klotz. Reflections on his 80th Birthday

Anna Kuhlig
Initiated by Peter Weibel and commissioned by the ZKM, students of the neighboring Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG) produced an interview film in which friends and companions of ZKM and HfG founder Heinrich Klotz have a chance to speak.

The interviewees are all in agreement: without the visionary dynamism, the force of conviction and the energy of Heinrich Klotz, the »moved mover«, the ZKM and HfG as sites of production, presentation, documentation and reflection of art in the context of advanced media technology would simply not have not come into existence.

 Prof. Peter Iden, Prof. Wolfgang Rihm, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Hans-Peter Schwarz, Prof. Dr. Klaus Schrenk, Prof. Dr. Martin Warnke and Prof. Dr. h.c. mult. Peter Weibel will hold speeches.

Prof. Andrei Ujica, Franziska Vogel, Christian Haardt, Irina Konyukhova, Silvia Mirzenco, Florian Geierstanger, Matthias Hederer, Steffen Oestreich, Florian Geierstanger, Madelaine Merino, Marie Falke, Anna Kuhlig and Barbara Kuon all collaborated on the film.
