Academy of Media Arts Cologne (KHM) presents Rundgang 2012

Academy of Media Arts Cologne (KHM)
Roman Hahlbrock/Jonas Zais, save our space. Installation, Rundgang KHM 2011.

The Rundgang at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne (KHM) presents work from around 150 students from the graduate and postgraduate “Media and Fine Art” courses. The exhibition shows young artistic positions and contemporary processes, including numerous degree projects from the fields of visual arts, media art, film and video, sound, performance, scenography as well as neighbouring and overlapping disciplines. Site-specific works and installations created especially for the Rundgang will be complemented by studies and experiments from the laboratories and workshops—such as the animation studio or the Lab3: laboratory for experimental computer sciences—who will open their doors to the Rundgang allowing insights into their working methods. In the OpenLab-Jam, students present performances, live actions, musical jams, video remixing etc. on an open stage. The exhibition space stretches across various rooms on the KHM campus: the neighbouring Trinitatiskirche, the library/media centre, the ateliers, studios, workshops, and laboratories all along Filzengraben and right down to Peter-Welter-Platz.

A comprehensive film programme presents 44 student films in 14 different blocks in the auditorium cinema, as well as 10 seminar exercises from the fields of feature and documentary film, essay and animation, experimental film and camera. The programme blocks begin at 2, 4, 6, and 8pm and will be moderated by professors and staff members and include discussions with the directors of the films. A total of 18 graduation films will be shown in the evening blocks.

The highlight of the opening of the Rundgang on Thursday, July 12 at 6pm, is the presentation of The Friends of the KHM e.V. scholarship (worth 7,000 Euro) and the Equal Opportunities prize (worth 3,500 Euro) for special artistic achievements. During the Rundgang the KHM will provide information on courses and offer guided tours through the exhibition and the academy from the info point at Filzengraben 2.
