Open House Day 2020
Open Day 2020 at ZKM Karlsruhe
Mon, 06.01.2020, 11 am CET, Duration: 7h

On January, 6, 2019, we would like to invite you to an open day at the ZKM with a rich program and free admission. This year is all about the issue of sustainability.

During the up-cycling workshop at the BÄM Lab, where disposable electronic materials are turned into unique designs, or at the maker's space, which has to be driven by bicycle by the visitor themselves, or at the road-to-hell game, which simulates an environmental cup game – visitors to the ZKM can experience the topic of sustainability in a variety of ways at the Open House Day. There will be a book flea market in the Medialounge for sustainable reading and a Mystery Room for deciphering secrets. In the media theater, the Roncalli Forum discusses the topic with experts from the fields of art and science. 

Guided tours through our current exhibitions and behind the scenes, workshops, presentations, concerts with contemporary music and other exciting events promise an unforgettable day at the ZKM for young and old.
