UNESCO reached a decision – Karlsruhe is the first German Creative City of Media Arts
Karlsruhe becomes the first German city in the media art category to be included in the global UNESCO Creative Cities Network. This was announced by the UNESCO Directorate General in Paris.
Peter Weibel, Artistic and Scientific Director of the ZKM: "This award is a global recognition that Karlsruhe has become more and more of a capital of art and creativity. We accept the title with gratitude and joy, because it is clear that the long-standing cultural work in Karlsruhe has led us to the Champions League of media art."
