On the occasion of the honorary prize awarded to Rotraut Pape in 2016, the Kassel Dokfest showed Fulldome films for the first time. Due to the great interest it attracted and as an addition to the festival profile, this year, the Kassel Dokfest will be presenting eight innovative Fulldome films, which give an insight into the new possibilities of the medium of dome films. Klaus Dufke (FH Potsdam), Rotraut Pape (HfG Offenbach) as well as Micky Remann (Bauhaus-Universität
Weimar) have compiled the program with friendly support of the FullDome Festival Jena and
will also be presenting it.
Completely submerging in an illusion is an ancient goal of humanity and art. The Dome, always a special place in the course of our cultural history, as a place of refuge and worship (caves), as an interface (church), a manifestation of power (architecture) and imagination (holodeck), as well as spirituality (firmament). After special planetariums were equipped with new projection technology, an innovative, audiovisual medium arose, taking account of this very special spatial situation in immersive experienced films: the fulldome film.
The audience is surrounded by images and sound and has to move independently to follow the stories. Liberated from the perspective of the external observer, one no longer sits in front of the
stage or screen but rather in the midst of things and from then on shifts into the center of the
world as viewer.

LISTEN CAREFULLY interprets Bruce Mau‘s „Incomplete Manifesto for Growth“ as an urban road
movie. Every collaborator who enters our orbit brings with him or her a world more strange and
complex than any we could ever hope to imagine. By listening to the details and the subtlety of their needs, desires, or ambitions, we fold their world onto our own. Neither party will ever be the same.
