Artistic Media Research in the early Video Art
A Cooperation between the KIT | Institute of Art and Architectural History and the ZKM | Karlsruhe

At the beginning of the 1970s, demands were made by video makers for a new way of producing and conveying knowledge that would be appropriate to the media age that had just dawned.

2019

Creative work and learning

Karlsruhe's libraries form an inter-institutional learning landscape that together meet the great demand for information services and jobs. The »Learning Libraries« project aims to network the learning landscape more closely, promote collaborative and active learning methods and increase the visibility of rooms and services.

2019-2022

Society in digital Change

Digitization is fundamentally changing the way society lives together. The aim of the interdisciplinary research project "digilog@bw" is to identify and analyze the impact of digitization on people and the resulting societal changes in order to lay the foundations for shaping digital change for the benefit of mankind.

Cultural knowledge Transfer through Chatbots

To which technical and cultural changes do institutions - be it public administration or museums - have to react today if they want to not only preserve knowledge, but also communicate it?
