Marshall Mcluhan Collection

A collection of film and audio items, unique in Germany, with and about the Canadian media theorist and his much-discussed theories

 

overview of the material

Apart from its permanent exhibition on Canadian culture, history, society and politics, the Marshall McLuhan Salon makes use of innovative Canadian technology to present numerous exclusive film and audio items with and about the Canadian media theorist Marshall McLuhan. In the spirit of McLuhan’s ideas, the visitor is invited to interact with the media and examine his theories.

The Marshall McLuhan exhibition was shown for the first time as part of Transmediale.07 and was subsequently integrated into the permanent exhibition of the Salon.

The special exhibition in the Marshall McLuhan Salon comprises the original versions of the video and audio items with and about Marshall McLuhan, as listed below, as well as CDs and books.
