Ingredients of communication from back then up to the present day
Think of all the things humans have invented to express themselves and to communicate with each other! From the Morse key to the smart phone, objects tell stories from the world of communication, encouraging comparison through time and a discussion about communication and media today.
ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS THE TELEPHONE
Communication in the context of the history of the smart phone
Since its invention, the telephone has made great strides to become the metaphorical equivalent of the Swiss army knife in communication. Multifunctional and always on hand, it characterises modern, everyday communication like no other device. A look into its history takes us right to the heart of an interaction with changes, new shapes and communication possibilities.

Why do we communicate? What tools do we need to do so? And how do we design our digital lives? The world of communication is large and multi-faceted. Using concrete research assignments, Kingcom helps people examine it more closely under the microscope.
In a full-day workshop led by an expert, small groups of learners research a topic that they have chosen themselves. They have the numerous attractive experience stations in the exhibitions at their disposal, though they are also allowed to ask the public or refer to statements from experts. They publish their research findings as a multimedia blog entry on the website kingkom.ch.
