ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien

Das ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien Karlsruhe wurde 1989 gegründet und ist weltweit die einzige Einrichtung, welche die Ausstellungsbereiche (Museen), Forschung, Produktionsbereiche und Aufführungsstätten unter einem Dach vereint.

Das Hertz-Labor operiert als transdisziplinäre Forschungs- und Entwicklungsplattform an der Schnittstelle der medialen Künste, Wissenschaft und Gesellschaft.

Das neu etablierte Hertz-Labor vereinigt das Institut für Bildmedien und das Institut für Musik und Akustik, um die bisherigen Handlungsfelder in engem transkulturellen Austausch mit internationalen Instituten und Forschungsstellen zu erweitern und die künstlerisch-medialen Ausdrucks- und Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten im Zeitalter des rapide beschleunigten technologischen Fortschritts und der Digitalisierung zu erforschen.
Schwerpunkttätigkeiten des Hertz-Labors sind sowohl die künstlerische Produktion als auch die medientechnologische Forschung. Am Labor werden zeitgenössische künstlerisch-wissenschaftliche Konzepte – zum Beispiel erweiterte Realität in AR- und VR-Anwendungen, Künstliche Intelligenz, Immersivität oder sensorengestützte Umgebungen sowie Erforschung künstlerischer Optionen im elektromagnetischen Feld – sowohl medien- als auch gattungsübergreifend reflektiert, auf künstlerische Anwendbarkeit hin überprüft und in Produktionen realisiert.
