On 19.-21.05.2022, ARTEFACTA will take place for the first time in the capital of North Rhine-Westphalia in cooperation with the Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf. Here we will present to the audience a wide range of digital media such as apps, podcasts, games and 3D animations from the fields of archaeology, history and art history, in addition to documentary films. There will be a children's programme with a separate audience award for the younger visitors. In addition, three lectures and a workshop discussion are planned, which will deal with the use of digital media with a focus on cultural history.
