The ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe is a future laboratory for art and society in the digital age. Here you can experience art in all its forms and take an active part in future developments.
Exhibitions on specific themes explore the spatial arts, such as painting, photography, and sculpture; however, the main focus is on the time-based arts: film, video, media art, music, dance, theater, and performance. But the ZKM does not confine itself to presenting works of art; from its very inception it saw its mission as creating innovative and favorable conditions for art to be created. At the ZKM’s Hertz-Lab guest artists, scholars, and scientists from all over the world research, develop, and produce works on artificial intelligence, augmented reality, virtual reality, and much more besides. It is this interaction between research and production, between exhibitions and performances, that sets the ZKM apart from other cultural institutions—it is more than a museum, it is a center and a future lab.
