Media: A Mirror of the World
Little more than a century ago the first signal ignited the age of radio communications. Today a dense information network sspans the globe, and we can receive pictures and data by radio from the very frontiers of our solar system.
But technical improvements, stunning as they may be, do not cover the entire story of what happened - and why. Technical solutions are sought and found by people, and people are always part and parcel of their respective societies. The media, in that sense, accurately mirror the world at large, reflecting who decides what we are allowed to know, what we are expected to believe, and whether we are entitled or forbidden to communicate.
In the Documentary Archive we aim to collect apparently “unimportant” items of evidence from these 120 years of radio history, to save them from getting lost and keep them for generations to come – true to our motto:
”The future needs a memory“
