The media? We are all part of it. Like it or not, we are all consumers, users, participants, content creators or the subjects of the media.
Journalists, the media, the authorities and we ourselves are all part of a constant power play for attention. This game is both interesting and complex. Does everyone play by the rules? What exactly are the rules and who makes them?
Our Media Museum focuses on this interplay of forces. Visit us and discover your views … and your own role.
