ZKM puts on countless touring exhibitions all over the world. For many years, they have been organized in close collaboration with the Goethe-Institute. Innovative exhibition formats have been developed, generating enthusiasm worldwide. 


Education & Mediation
Museum communication is interdisciplinary, cross-media and participatory!
  • Our formats, which return regularly, appeal to a wide range of interests.
  • A day at ZKM means immersion in an entire cosmos of analogue and digital worlds.
