Un exciting night full of performance and entertainment awaited the guests of the Bento bar in Karlsruhe. The Highlight of the night was the tombola, in which the visitors could win a most precious price: Each night 3 guests were chosen to participate in a performative theater-play named Background-roars. The production was designed for only one spectator and was showed three times each night.
Background-roars was the result of the correspondent Seminar held by professor Beatrix von Pilgrim and the dramaturge Henning Fülle.
The department of scenography of the University of Art and Design Karlsruhe focuses on strategies of Media-, Sound-, Installation- , and Performance- Art and aims to open new perspectives working within space.
The project was funded by the company FSB.

Space/ 7 was created within the GOPUBLIC Project.
The exhibition Night-ride was realized in July 2007 and the Park of the Castle in Karlsruhe and registered a record of 1000 visitors within only a few hours.
Only for one an art and media landscape with a large scope of performancesand installations was set up in the middle of nature. Experiments with Images, light, and sounds extended over the whole area of the park. A luminous orientation-system marked the tracks between stations. There were manifold opportunities for the visitors to participate, through which new horizons and interest for art could be opened.
