But our main interest is in the present and future – and for this, art is our tool as nowadays the scope of art is no longer self-referential: instead, it takes up current socially relevant themes, approaches, and disciplines in other fields; it is interested not only in politics but, most significantly, in science. This is what we want to show, and share with you – not only onsite, but also online, via our website and the various networks.
Digitalization has captured us and we want to understand this digital world in which we live – which is becoming ever smarter and whose functions are becoming increasingly invisible. We want to work on this and work on the contents. We want to share this knowledge and insights with you – not only onsite but also online, via our website and the networks.
We want to share knowledge with you, and learn from you. We address current topics and want to hear your opinion – after all, »doubt grows with knowledge« (Goethe). Visibility arises when something is widely discussed.
Why with the ZKM?
Because we are not only at home in the art world. We discover and we show! We are not the art market and we are not dusty. We bring together what belongs together: art, science, literature, the performing arts, politics, economics.
