Center For Art And Media Technology, Karlsruhe Reviews
Amazing interactive art and video games that are thought provoking. Plants hooked up to virtual reality, a motor with gear reductions so great it will take 13 billion years to make a rotation, many great works of art and the history of weird innovation.
The place was ways better a couple of years ago. No there are only a temporary exibition and no museum as such anymore. Some exibitions are free of charge. You can even work/study there at multiple available tables. Fruits and coffee are available free of charge as well.
See this place was highly recommended to me by locals as being of amazement to kids and adults alike. But me being me not checking the opening hours properly end up in front of closed doors on a sunny Saturday morning. Therefore I can only tell you about the pretty piece of green grass next to the entrance. Thanks to other buildings the lawn is cut of off the street noise. You here the birds chirping and the grass growing. Fair enough, Saturday mornings you can watch a group of Karlsruhers train there dogs and they have just the happiest medium-sized dogs imaginable. Eager to learn, eager to play, eager to hump. I spent an hour in what appears the most wild nature to any city dweller, some lawn, watching humans and doggies interact for the cheer joy of it. I can only recommend the ZKM. Great trip.
Vast and confusing building with disturbing associations. But very impressive exhibition spaces and displays. Well worth a day.
A smash. The show "Open Codes" is fun, smart, free, and absolutely mesmerizing, beating everything I've seen in Berlin (or in fact New York) in the last few years. Great interactivity with an excellent breadth of topics spread put in a vast space to let you wander and explorez Two of the three virtual reality pieces (one in which you meet yourself (!!!) ) are highlights. As for the building, it's okay. Gigantic with no real claims to style, so maybe they should cut back on the "German Pompidou Ceter" claims.
