Permanent exhibition of the Computerspielemuseum

January 21, 2011

The new permanent exhibition of the Computerspielemuseum opens up to visitors on January 21st, 2011. The museum is located in Berlin-Friedrichshain. Visitors are taken on a historical journey covering the highlights of a process that started 60 years ago. "The Computerspielemuseum is an asset to Berlin’s cultural landscape," said the mayor of Berlin, Klaus Wowereit, on the occasion of the opening. "I am happy to see that this young medium has at last found a suitable home here."

More than 60 years ago the computer became a gaming machine. Since then, digital games have contributed more to the diffusion of computers than any other application. The message of this new medium is interaction, suitable for daily use and creative possiblities, today already realised in global, interactive organised networks. In just a few years the digital game has changed the societal communication fundamentally - as printing and film have already done before. A long time misjudged as children‘s toy, computer and video games are increasingly at the focus of interest inside society.
