Founding of the ZKM | Zentrum für Kunst und Medien, Karlsruhe

The ZKM combines research and production, exhibitions and events, archive and collection. Operating at the interface between art and science, it takes up new knowledge in the field of media technology with a view to further development. In 1997, the ZKM relocated to a restored industrial building that was once part of a munitions factory. It is now home to a media museum and museum for contemporary art, as well as a series of institutes specializing in image media and music and acoustics, a media library, and a media theater and cube.
