The ZKM – an experimentation workshop for artists, researchers, and its many visitors
One human trait that many would like to have, but few actually ever master, is to “think opportunity” at every turn. One person who can claim that he has done this all of his life is the founding director of the ZKM, Heinrich Klotz. It was in 1989 that he gave the ZKM the opportunity to think as big, active, and – perhaps most importantly – innovative as it is today. In the same year, he also set up the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design (HfG) in a former munitions factory in Karlsruhe. And why Karlsruhe?

“The German state Baden-Württemberg and especially the TechnologyRegion Karlsruhe is an optimal location for us. Our gesture control software is focused on industrial applications and the high concentration of innovative companies here – from the multi-national to the „Mittelstand“ – suits us very well. In Karlsruhe we benefit from the active startup scene and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, which supports us and allows recruitment of very talented and passionate employees.”
