The developments in games, movies, music videos, computers, phones, and many other media that have become part of our lives. The digital revolution has redefined art, communication and perception. Here, at the Digital Revolution exhibit, you can play, touch and experience the digital world.
The exhibition features both early digital technology - be it the Apple 2 8-bit computer (1977-1993) or pioneering examples of electronic music devices such as the Fairlight CMI (1979) - as well as an artistic exploration of the future. You can discover various interactive online games and marvel at the installation Escape III, where used cell phones have been transformed into bird sculptures. A large part of the exhibited objects is interactive so that the guests can experience the effect and aesthetics.
Films have been strongly influenced by digital technologies since the 1970s: the way of telling stories, the image design and the democratization of production processes are the highlights of the exhibition.
Guests can also enjoy the best cake in the city at the film café. With a changing menu of hot food and a great selection of cakes and coffee, the café in the foyer of the museum is a popular lunchtime destination.
The digital revolution exhibition is open until the 10th of November 2019 from 10:00 am-8:00 pm at the Deutsches film institute & film museum, Frankfurt.
