The Cinematic Imaginary after Film
Curated by Jeffrey Shaw and Peter Weibel
November 16, 2002  March 30, 2003

Press Conference: Thursday, November 14, 2002, 11 a.m., ZKM-Medientheater

Exhibition Opening: Friday, November 15, 2002, 7 p.m., ZKM-Foyer

The conditions of cinematographic art have changed radically over the
past years. On the verge 
of a material revolution new possibilities of camera and production
techniques have emerged that 
also allow new modes of narration and image languages. FUTURE CINEMA is
the first major international exhibition of current art practice in the
domain of video, film, computer and web based installations that embody
and anticipate new cinematic techniques and modes of expression. No
commercial or industrial working teams  la Hollywood will be presented,
but the individual efforts of artists who overcome or undermine the
global standards of the cinema industry.

The exhibition will premier numerous works, some specially commissioned
for this exhibition, and a few actually produced at the ZKM | Institute
for Visual Media. A strong curatorial emphasis will be on installations
that diverge from the conventional on the wall mounted and projected
screen format and which explore more immersive and technologically
innovative environments such as multi-screen, panoramic, dome
projection, shared multi-user, and on-line configurations. Another
central focus will be on works that explore creative approaches to the
design of interactive non-linear narrative content. The exhibition gives
an overview of creative possibilities in these areas of cinematographic
research  a laboratory where scientists and artists can meet and a
window into the future.

Further information on the exhibtion:

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog in English by The MIT
Press, Cambridge, MA.
