Reopening of the exhibition »Writing the History of the Future«


Poster »Writing the History of the Future«

The ZKM opened its doors again on May 28 2021 and, for the first time since August 2020, the exhibition »Writing the History of the Future: The ZKM Collection« is once more open to the public. In addition to historic masterpieces from the ZKM’s unique collection of media art, the exhibition also includes works of currently much-discussed crypto art. »Writing the History of the Future« thus provides an up-to- date overview of the history of digital art from the 1960s to the present.

The vast dimensions of the airy spaces in the ZKM building with its industrial architecture offer optimal conditions for a visit to the exhibition in compliance with Covid-19 safety precautions. Interactive installations as well as works of video and sound art, however, did present a challenge because these works are normally touched by the user or presented in cabins. Over the past months the ZKM has developed a number of technical solutions to make such works accessible while complying with the current standards for hygiene.
