****************************************************************************

The Festival reflects on a worldwide trend of large digital moving images
integrated in facade structures and investigating their communicative
function in the urban environment.
 

ARTISTS EXPERIMENT WITH A NEW EXHIBITION FORMAT

For the first time, the public will witness the use of not only cultural but
also commercial facades of SAP, O2 World, Gasometer Schöneberg, Collegium
Hungaricum Berlin and the Wall-Terminal as cultural communication portals.
Twenty-four original artist works specifically commissioned for the
different façades will be screened from 17 October until 3 November 2008.

The artist works will focus on the exploration of site-specific content,
space and dimension. The unique artistic productions and installations will
also involve participation of the local inhabitants where the facades are
situated in an attempt to generate a new sense of identity. The interaction
amongst the commercial media facade operators, curators, artists and the
general public facilitated through this festival will serve as testing
ground for future creative and urban media developments.

 
CONFERENCE AND ARCHITECTURE EXPOSITON

Alongside, we present an international conference with a diverse range of
speakers and an architectural exhibition comparing and providing details
about worldwide unique media Facades at the German Architecture Center.

There's a lot in store for the mind and for the eyes.

The conference will focus on the relevance of media architecture and urban
screens both for experts and the general public. It aims to promote
architectural questions and visions within a wider context of related
aspects considering danger of visual overload  in urban space. Besides
Project Presentations and an expert workshop organized by ARUP we will
discuss the following topics:

- Social Media Architecture
- Culture, Economy, Public Space - an Interface
- Perception and behavior - facing Urban Media
- Dynamic Ornament- Towards a new Iconography
