The Museum Communication stands for innovative and interdisciplinary art education and functions as an interface between the ZKM and its visitors.
With the increasing merging of the worlds of art and science and the movement towards a maker culture which is also evident in the ZKM exhibitions, the staff from ZKM | Museum Communication wants to convey these contents on a sustainable and exciting basis as part of a dialog with the visitors. Since November 20, 2015, a special space has been available at the ZKM for this very purpose: BÄM.
BÄM: Be A Maker – Brain Action Media – Building Advances Meaning – Be A Media Artist – ...
… these just a few definitions that describe the space that has been created especially for the program. BÄM is a kind of open workshop and invites you to »make things« on a digital and analog basis. The space is open to new contents and target groups, it adopts new methods of learning, and it helps to develop expertise for new artistic media. It is a place where children, youngsters and young adults are inspired and invited to engage in creative thinking, to take action, to develop their skills and to try out new things in the midst of the exhibitions and the works of art.
