Script Films. Script as Image in Movement



exhibition in ZKM, Karlsruhe, Germany, until 12 January 2014
Focusing on artistic film, ZKM presents an exhibition about script films. Analogue or digitally based films or film fragments are designated as script film in which moving, animated, graphically striking, and designed scripts set to music, play the main role. Script and image have begun advancing like no other genre: whether as an art film, feature film, advertising film, or music video, the script film established itself as far back as the pioneering era. This exhibition has been designed as a mobile archive, where visitors can analyse and experiment with the subject interactively: not infrequently, the script becomes a moving and emotionalised main actor, as well as a self-performer.
