When ENIGMA opens, we have something very special in store for all of you. Something for the curious, the childish, the serious, the playful, the insightful and for those out of the loop. Something for those who learn best through experiencing, touching and trying out. And something for those who want to grapple with the existential and social issues we face as modern human beings – connected globally by cables, wires, radio waves and other means of communication.
Our four new exhibition and activity areas will walk you through the great inventions and some of the ingenious tweaks and hacks of modern communications and media history - from the establishment of the Danish postal service in 1624 to the use of SpaceX’s Starlink satellites to provide internet to Ukrainians in the ongoing war. Past, present and future under one roof.
Communication in Crisis
In our daily life online, we are constantly confronted with stories about things that threaten us as individuals and as a society – from the selling of our personal data by big tech companies to sophisticated cyberattacks organized by nation states. Has communications technologies always been used as a weapon?
The history of communications technology is brimming with great ideas.Small tweaks, big dreams and playful takes on existing technologies has often turned into incredible inventions – inventions that brought people closer together and made the world bigger and smaller at the same time.
