Der Fachbereich Digitale Medien der Staatlichen Hochschule für Gestaltung Karlsruhe präsentierte mit „Natalie's Port Men“ Positionen junger Künstler am Rheinhafen Karlsruhe.
Die Arbeiten sind von dem industriellen Hafen selbst inspiriert worden und traten mit der beeindruckenden Kulisse vor Ort in den Dialog. Der Rheinhafen wurde für diesen Abend mit Projektionen, Klangobjekten, interaktiven Installationen, kinetischen Installationen, Skulpturen etc. transformiert und in anderer Gestalt erfahrbar gemacht.
Gleich am Anfang des Wintersemesters 2013/14 gab es im Rahmen des Go Public-Seminars einen intensiven Crash-Workshop, an dem Studenten der Musashino Art University Tokyo und interessierte HFG-Studenten partizipiert haben.
Innerhalb nur einer Woche wurden Projekte entwickelt, die dann unmittelbar danach im öffentlichen Raum der Stadt Karlsruhe oder in der Nähe (Klosterruine Frauenalb) gezeigt wurden.
This year's summer exhibition of the Department InfoArt was dominated by the GameLab. The GameLab at the Institute for Postdigital Narrativity at the HfG is a label for media art, which deals with the media game and the contemporary game culture. The profile is characterized by artistic production and research on game art, retro games, serious games, machinima, augmented reality and stereoscopy. The game concept has been extended and this border crossing is the area of research. The GameLab was founded in 2010 by Prof. Michael Bielicky, Jens Stober and Adam Rafinski.
The Najadenwäldchen, east of the Schlossplatz was transformed into an arts park with digital media. "Nachtwandlung" (conversion night) showed the best short-term projects of the past year made by thirteen students. For one night an arts landscape emerged amidst nature, which offered a wide range of performance and installations. Its philosophy is the presentation of media art in a broad public - outside of museum exhibition space and interactive options.
INSTALLATIONS, WORKSHOPS, ARTISTIC RESEARCH From September 2. till 11. the exhibition presented interactive installations, workshops and performances in Karlsruhe's urban space. Installations by Jens Stober, Jan Cordes, Marianne Schmidt and Hedi Haase were shown in the urban space. The concept that deals with the topics "door" / "entrance" or "passage" was developed in Prof. Michael Bielicky's seminar "LOCKPICKING" and was sponsored by Franz Schneider Brakel GmbH + Co KG. The wide and varied interpretation of the theme showed works of different artistic approaches.
On 28. January 2010 the Digital Media Division of the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe showed positions of young artists in a forest area near Schöllbronn under the title "Wald halt - a multi-media Black Forest Idyll". For one night, the silence of the forest was turned into a multimedia art exhibition. "Wald halt" (“just forest”) surpassed all previous technical and organizational effort. The exhibition was accessible only by car, with the free shuttle service or a long hike through the dark forest. Under the direction of Prof.
The Department of Digital Media at the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe has shown positions of young artists in the Monastery Ruins Frauenalb under the title "Outside". The exhibition was a great success and was numerously attended despite rainy weather. It was already the seventh interactive exhibition of "GoPublic". Their works have been shown in Prague, Bangkok, Barcelona and many other major cities around the world. The basic idea is to establish art which is accessible in public spaces. The concept was initiated by Prof. Michael Bielicky.
