in situ-next city sounds:interfaces
site specific events

As part of the 20th KAMUNA (Karlsruhe Museum Night) on August 4, 2018 so-called "in-situ performances" took place at three locations in Karlsruhe: ßpace, Halo and the Kaiserstraße pedestrian zone was connected to the ZKM via an outgoing audio data stream.

In ßpace the artist Lasse-Marc Riek condensed naturalistic field recordings, noise and soundscape recordings into a live collage. Lintu + Røyk performed with modular synthesizers and broadcast live electronica from the artist-run space Halo in the eastern city of Karlsruhe. The members of KITeratur presented their participatory performance "SYNONiMUS" in the pedestrian zone in Kaiserstraße, while the No Input Ensemble performed in the subspace of the ZKM under the blue cube. At the ZKM, all incoming signals were fanned out like a kaleidoscope and artistically processed in a sound installation by Yannick Hofmann, Marco Kempf, Ben Miller, Sebastian Schottke and Dan Wilcox in the cube, in the cube anteroom and in the underground car park at the ZKM.

CD release: Next City Sounds Interfaces
This audio recording was made in the ZKM Cube, where the KAMUNA visitors could determine the sound mixing of the audio data streams via an interactive interface specially developed for this project and experiment with the sound material using a battery of interconnected sound alienators and effect pedals.

ONUK: temporär

ONUK Bernhard Schmitt's photographs take us to the great metropolises of the world, they place us at the center of photography and suddenly we find ourselves in a rush of faces, objects and moving elements. In addition to the sitting guests of an underground in Shanghai or pedestrians in London or Venice, transience also plays an important role in the photographs. Space is just as important as (accelerated) time in ONUK's work. He traveled all over the world and photographed the most famous cities, but there are no recognizable elements of these places in his pictures. Neither Big Ben in London, nor St Mark's Cathedral in Venice, but the residents and their daily activities are in the focus of his pictures. In this sense, the space captured by ONUK speaks simultaneously of global and local space; it reflects our globalized world, in which one sees the metropolis, but at the same time cannot recognize it. The global-local context has accompanied ONUK throughout his career. He not only carried out photographic projects in Europe and Asia, he also worked for numerous media in Karlsruhe and photographed for the ZKM and KAMUNA (Karlsruhe Museum Night) for many years. Together with a selection of his photographs from all over the world, the exhibition will present an overview of KAMUNA events of the last twenty years.
