Founded to bring art into the digital age, ZKM has set numerous focal points and themes over the years that have had an impact on society and/or do so today. Of particular importance for the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st century is the technologization and digitalization, which has increased in speed and has been increasingly thematized, discussed, processed by artists with the aim of shaping our future.

Together with numerous guest artists and ZKM visitors, we continuously reflect on what is happening and, in the form of exhibitions and participatory events, develop ideas and approaches for a sustainable existence worth living.

A center for the future of the museum
We accompany the development towards digital culture
  • Digitization is changing the way we think and acquire knowledge. With artistic productions, exhibitions and events, the ZKM provides important impulses for discussing the effects and possibilities of digital change.
  • Since 1989, artists from all over the world have been coming to the ZKM to conceive and produce works of the visual and performative arts using digital means.

ZKM houses the world's largest collection of computer-based art. It reflects the technological changes of the past decades.

Both online and on site: The digital communication of art and knowledge takes place at ZKM on several levels.

Early on, ZKM used the diverse technological possibilities to expand the transfer of knowledge beyond the conventional medium of books.

From the very beginning, ZKM has focused on the artistic use of technology. Public visibility could be generated by giving awards.
