Let us imagine digitalization and its impact on identity and society as a vast country: although some of the landmarks are familiar, there is a great deal more to discover. The special exhibition “#unchartedterritory: You, me and digitalization” was an invitation to discover this terrain – some parts of the show are now temporarily integrated into our permanent exhibition as a dialogue route.
However, the freedom of the digital world also poses challenges for us as individuals and for society as a whole. What concrete impact does digitalization have on our lives? In what areas is it causing a social shift?
Both online and offline, we are renegotiating the rules of communication. Knowledge and information can be accessed via unfamiliar paths and channels. New forms of relationships and friendships are developing. Digitality is increasingly blurring the boundaries between digital and analogue reality, while behavioural patterns from the internet shape our interaction. Our daily lives are becoming digitalized as a matter of course. This digital transformation is experienced in various ways. Regarded by some as a natural process of evolution, others view the shift as an almost violent revolution that is turning familiar values and norms upside down.
The exhibition #uncharteredterritory went on a discovery tour, showed practices and places of the digital in our everyday life and asked how we want to shape a digital society. But the topic #uncharteredterritory accompanies us even further:
Selected areas of the exhibiton are integrated into the museum’s permanent exhibition until January 9, 2022 as “tracks”. The digitalization in the areas of “Identity”, “Guidance”, “Knowledge” and “Optimization” then enters into dialogue with the constant exhibition about human communication.
