The desktop is considered as one of the earliest metaphors for Graphical 
User Interfaces of personal computers. It has become an icon of 
graphical operating systems and their surfaces.

The exhibition “Desktop Screenshots Collection 1997–today” presents a 
compilation of network activities that had the computer desktop as their 
topic. This exhibition does not point to the subject of the desktop 
metaphor per se, nor it tries to investigate the importance of a desktop 
in its function as an interface for the computer. This exhibition is 
about screenshots presenting desktops in specific states or situations. 
The collection thus oscillates between staged self-expression, 
prototypical design exploration and private insight.
