Place: Large Hall + Small Hall Kulturfabrik, Esch-sur-Alzette

The Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History of the University of Luxembourg proposes you to experience a mesmerizing historic magic lantern performance, the optical illusions of the Kinora motion picture viewer, and the astonishing sound of a giant 3D-printed exponential gramophone horn. During this special forum Z event, we will dive into the world of Experimental Media Archaeology and the power of object-based re-enactment on the historical imagination. 

Full programme: 

Aleksander Kolkowski: Auxetophone and Stentorphone air-amplified gramophones (ca. 1908-1921), live demonstration of original and replica models using a newly-built, giant exponential gramophone horn based on a design from 1929.

Tim van der Heijden: Kinora motion picture viewing technology (ca. 1907), live demonstration of original and replica models, and screening of 9.5mm reels with a Pathé-Baby film projector (ca. 1924) on an original projection screen. 

Karin Bienek & Ludwig Vogl-Bienek (Illuminago): ‘Magische Lichtspiele' - Magic Lantern Show with gramophone accompaniment by Aleksander Kolkowski.

The event will be followed by a small but friendly reception.

Language: English and German
