In the organizer's words:

The exhibition presents the themes of image, print, writing and cryptology. From the flood of images, including RAF wanted posters, Otl Aicher's 1972 Olympic posters and a gallery of Vincent van Gogh's famous sunflower paintings, the exhibition moves on to image printing and printing technology. Here the Gutenberg Galaxy shines in the center, next to it is the printing press hall with high-speed presses and the large rotary printing press. The typeface, which plays the main role in printing technology, is then examined in more detail. The main focus here is on its function as a repository of knowledge and cultural mediator across temporal and spatial boundaries. In cryptology, everything then revolves around secret communication with encryption and decryption techniques from antiquity to the computer age.

You will find out every day at around 9.20 a.m. what activities are taking place in the daily program. Our daily changing program for individual visitors and small groups of up to five people offers guided tours, demonstrations, science shows and hands-on programs. All programs start directly at the respective action location or at the guided tour meeting point in the respective exhibition.
