From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Opened in 1997, the ZKM serves as a centre for the production and exhibition of contemporary arts and emergent media technologies. The building is a 312 metre long converted former munition factory of IWKA and is shared with the Staatliche Hochschule für Gestaltung (HfG). The building is now listed.
The ZKM frequently hosts lectures, conferences, exhibitions and screenings, and has (co-)published several books and media. Since 1999 Professor Peter Weibel is leading the ZKM.
