Explored through prominent and cutting-edge research projects and special commissions by international artists, the exhibition is an unprecedented survey of the relationship between humans and technology.

COVID-19 safety measures

While this is an interactive exhibition with the aim of transporting visitors into a futuristic world, the museum has been greeted by a changed world which has undoubtedly affected the way museums are run – which now includes integrating COVID-19 health and safety hygiene regulations as a priority.

Due to the interactive nature of the exhibition, hand sanitiser stations are placed inside the exhibition, and visitors are encouraged to use these before and after using the interactive exhibits.

Anne Fahy, Head of World Museum comments: “COVID-19 has meant that we have had to make changes in our venue but making sure that our visitors have a memorable visit is equally important. The team has worked tirelessly in making sure we don’t lose valuable content or the connection between people and art.”

“The safety of our staff and visitors is our number one priority and that is why the added hygiene regime integrated within the exhibition is vital. We’ve all had to adapt to these evolving challenges – but we hope the buzz and excitement of a museum experience is still present.”


The exhibition was curated and organised by world-class art and learning organisation The Barbican in London and co-produced by Forum Groningen, Netherlands.
