Opening its doors in 2016, the Museum of Digital Art will be Europe's first physical and virtual museum dedicated to digital arts — an open space connecting creativity and technology.
Located in Zurich, Switzerland — a hot spot for science, technology and art — the MuDA will occupy the 400 m² ground floor of the Herdern Hochhaus, one of Switzerland's first high-rise building, a historically protected landmark.
The Museum of Digital Art is a project of the Digital Arts Association (DAA), a non-profit organisation domiciled in Zurich. The DAA was founded to promote digital arts and support its creators and community in the belief in computer code's potential and importance as an expressive artistic tool.
