The Goethe-Institut is proud to participate once again in the Nuit blanche during MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE to present a multimedia installation entitled Exploded Cinema and conceived especially for this event by the German artist group RaumZeitPiraten.
Inspired by the concept of extended cinema, based on art history, the RaumZeitPiraten will create a conglomerate of optoacoustic devices and machines that they will install at the Goethe-Institut, transforming this place and its architectural properties into a walkable audiovisual network. What was historically a cinema experience will be become a futuristic and interactive experimentation place that, instead of presenting the illusion of a project for the future, will transform the passive observer into an active element in a space of possibilities.
About the RaumZeitPiraten
The RaumZeitPiraten (Tobias Daemgen, Jan Ehlen, Moritz Ellerich) are a space and time bending artist group. Since 207, they have been misusing and remixing ancient and up-to-date auditive and visual technologies for heterogeneous, organically improvised light and sound architectures. Their activities are aimed at playful, experimental connections of sound, image, object, space and time to an alternately-self-expanding-multimedia-performance-surround-spaceship-laboratory-travel to somewhere between science and fiction. The RaumZeitPiraten perform internationally and their work has been rewarded numerous prizes and grants. ()
