Streaming Museum produces and presents contemporary-themed exhibitions of international fine arts, pop culture and cross-disciplinary perspectives to a global audience through an expanding network of screens in public spaces on 7 continents, partnering cultural and commercial centers, and Since 2008 Streaming Museum’s exhibitions have been viewed by millions of people in over 65 locations around the world. Streaming Museum is part of the inspiration-and-information-with-social-value economy.


We believe that the arts and technology channel inspiration and knowledge that make the world a better place.


Streaming Museum’s programs are inspired by the “overview effect” which describes the transforming experience of astronauts looking at earth in space. And in parallel to this we believe that the “worldview effect” of looking at the world through the arts, people, cultures and visionary ideas, is a key element in this transforming experience. Technology has made it possible to watch the entire world. The question is … what do we see, and what needs to be attended to.

Our content centers around contemporary-themes that reflect multi-disciplinary perspectives from the arts, sciences, global economics and geopolitics, cultural diversities and commonalities, our interdependence and future.

ABOUT THIS WEBSITE is the home base of the museum. Here you can see the art that we tour to international public spaces and partnering cultural centers, along with details on accompanying events. It also includes special programs of arts and a range of content that cover the global, interdisciplinary, technology-based focus of our programming.
