Sunday Evening

On Sunday evening, we’ll kick off with a welcome event on campus—an opportunity to arrive, connect, and have initial engaging discussions. Stay tuned for more details!

Monday Evening

On Monday evening, we kick off with a gathering on campus including a demo and poster session. Afterwards we invite you to the SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE. Experience the captivating world of projection art on the baroque facade of Karlsruhe Palace. This cultural highlight in the heart of the UNESCO City of Media Arts offers an opportunity for a relaxed exchange and refreshments, creating a distinctive combination of art appreciation and social interaction.

Every year, the SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE attract several hundred thousand visitors to the UNESCO City of Media Arts Karlsruhe with free admission. Every evening for around four weeks in August and September, the 170-metre-long façade of Karlsruhe’s baroque palace becomes a grand stage for artistic contributions to projection mapping. The ZKM | Center for Art and Media is the official partner of the SCHLOSSLICHTSPIELE.

These will take place again from 15 August to 15 September 2024 and will also be part of the MuC 2024 program. The theme in 2024 refers to the 75th anniversary of the German Basic Law – contributions from the fields of law and democracy can therefore be expected. As the seat of the Federal Constitutional Court and the Federal Court of Justice, Karlsruhe is the city of law in Germany.
