Baden Marathon 2005: Kilometer 1

The first kilometer was pretty crowded, but I resisted the urge to start weaving through the crowd. I made this mistake last year during the half-marathon along this route and wore myself out pretty fast. Despite the crowded conditions I still managed to pass the 1K marker at my pre-established goal pace of 5:30/K (8:51/M). The 1K marker was located near the Karlsruhe Film Palace, pictured below, a part of the new ZKM (Center for Art and Media Technology) that was built a few years ago.

The ZKM was established in 1989 and has since gained an international reputation. An interactive art gallery unites pioneer work and the latest developments from the field of media art. The artworks themselves do not materialise until the visitor interacts with them, new and always different, depending on the visitor's input. Quite a weird and unique feeling!!!

The Center for Art and Media Technology is a museum of all genres. There is more to see than media art with television and video sculptures ("monitor-art"), video installations or computer-generated and animated images. The traditional genres such as sculpture, graphics, design, photography and painting are presented in their contemporary forms as well and are brought into lively interplay with the "new media" - revealing surprising relationships.

The "Mediathek" is divided into an audio collection, a library and a video collection. Since October 1997, it has held a comprehensive collection of international video art, contemporary music and literature on this 20th century art form. All the existing material on the fields of art, architecture, theater and modern design can be researched in a central database.
