Visiting Conn3ct

From 22 June 2017 on, the Hendrik Conscience Heritage Library changes into a social media space.  'Conn3ct: 2 media, 1 story' compares present-day social media with printed books from the sixteenth century. The exhibition shows the impact of a new medium on people and their environment.

As a visitor, you will go on a unique interactive journey between historical printed matter and multimedia consoles. The exhibition is a social medium in itself. You'll log in to the exhibition installation and share your opinions and preferences with other visitors. Conn3ct lets you discover the link between Luther and Twitter in a fun way.
