As a worldwide unique institute of culture, the ZKM (Centre for Art and Media) is both museum and more than a museum. It is house for all media and genre, a house for both spatially-based art such as painting, photography and sculpture as well as for time-based arts such as film, video, media art, music, dance, theater and performance. The ZKM was founded as a museum in 1989 with the mission to perpetuate classic arts in the digital age – the reason for its also being referred to as »Electronic or Digital Art Bauhaus«.
The ZKM also houses institutes and laboratories in which research and development is carried out.
