It is important for the ZKM | Karlsruhe and its staff to facilitate easy access to the house’s exhibitions and events for disabled people. To this end, among the top priorities during planning phase for the reconstruction of this former munitions factory into a center of culture was barrier-free and unimpeded access to the various areas of the ZKM.
