TYPEMOTION. Type as Image in Motion
Movable at least since Gutenberg, type has been moving to and across cinema screens, computer monitors and other projection surfaces. TYPEMOTION, an international editorial and research project, explores the experimental combination of images and ty pe in film, from the early days of silent cinema to the ubiquitous visual culture of the present day. In November 2013, the first exhibit ion of this project "Schriftfilme / Typemotion - Type as Image in Moti on" took place in the Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe (ZKM) with more than 250 moving images and objects of the contemporary art on display. Between 10 October and 9 November 2014, in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut in Lithuania, key works in the project are on display at the National Gallery of Art in Vilnius.
