JK: Actually, little has changed in the way we function and work as a knowledge repository of our society, but we welcome the fact that increased attention has been given to this important aspect. We are committed not only to the audience of the present, but also to the audience of the future.
MG: Definitely. Collecting and researching are central aspects of our tasks and our mission as a museum, but these activities are less evident to the public than the exhibitions and educational programmes. But anyone who has ever wondered in the midst of this crisis how this exceptional situation will be remembered in 20, 50 or 100 years will quickly find that museums and archives take on a central role and responsibility. With major campaigns such as the call for submissions to the 10-Megabyte Museum, we want to raise awareness that this is also a participatory and democratic process. With that in mind, we are excited to receive many diverse and perhaps also surprising submissions that will tell this story together with us!
