Karlsruhe Seminar/workshop Documentation of Installation Art (1 & 2 December 2005)

The third Inside Installations event was organised by co-organiser Restaurierungszentrum Düsseldorf and kindly hosted by the Zentrum für Kunst und Medientechnologie (ZKM) in Karlsruhe.

The main subject of the seminar was the documentation of installation art. Contributions by the German partners focussed on measuring techniques and documentation strategies applicable to complex installations and their time-based elements movement, sound and light. Additional papers presented by guest speakers dealt with the accessibility and management of knowledge on installation art. A model designed by the German partners for the documentation of installation art was presented and critically discussed.

Finally a discourse on the term installation provided an introduction to the next project meeting on Theory and Semantics of Installation Art on 11th and 12th May, 2006 in Maastricht.

On day 2, a workshop on documentation was held for project partners.
