Education & Mediation
Museum communication is interdisciplinary, cross-media and at best participatory!
  • Our formats, which return regularly, appeal to a wide range of interests.
  • A day at ZKM means immersion in an entire cosmos of analogue and digital worlds.

Collection & Archives

The collection and the archives contain works and documents from the 20th and 21st century.

The special feature of the ZKM's collection activities is its focus on the electronic arts. The video art collection is one of the largest in Europe and the computer art collection is the largest of its kind in the world. In addition, there is an extensive collection of works of electronic music.

ZKM international

The ZKM puts on countless touring exhibitions all over the world. For many years, they have been organized in close collaboration with the Goethe-Institute. Innovative exhibition formats have been developed, generating enthusiasm worldwide.
