Permanent Exhibition Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum, Cologne

Back Download

A scenographic course, spread over three floors and 3,600 sqm of exhibition space, was developed for the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum. The intention was to create rooms filled with intensity and magic, enabling an intuitive access to multifaceted and complex ethnological topics. The innovative exhibition concept foregoes the usual geographical classification but instead focuses on issues which are handled and approached differently in different cultural groups. The authentic object with its specific aura stands in the centre of these arrangements.
